Step into Crawley's history

About Crawley Museum

Crawley Museum is a local history museum. It tells the history of the town through objects and their stories. It has an active programme of events and temporary exhibitions which reflect various aspects of the town and the local area. It also has a learning offer for all ages. Our collections include objects from Crawley prehistory, its medieval settlement, the Victorian town and the 20th Century New Town development. We also collect contemporary objects. We celebrate Crawley’s communities today through our oral history collections, temporary exhibitions and community engagement projects. Items on permanent display include our 1903 Rex Forecar and a Bronze Age sword.

We also have a temporary exhibition space. This hosts a variety of displays which will change regularly.
