Step into an alternative reality where the fascinating history of Crawley’s past meets futuristic innovation and imagination knows no bounds! Take a tour of our historical gem of a museum housed in a stunning 15th century building where gears turn, crows squawk, clocks tick and miraculous remedies are displayed in our Victorian chemist’s display.
