“Brilliant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

A lovely little museum displaying Shorehams history with fishing and the film industry it used to be a part of. Its so interesting to see what had happened in the local area in times gone by, more locals should check it out, as I was guilty of not ever going in it until last year and Im a born and bred shorehamite! (I`m 24)

“Interesting Mix Of Fishing And Film Studios.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

The museum is housed in i recall a 14th Century museum.inside though it is quite modern and bright.On the ground floor there is a lot to do with the towns main industry of fishing and also on the story of the building.On the first fllor there are varied and interesting displays on the Home Front in the Second World War,RAF airfields in the area amd Shoreham film studios and the infant film industry.It epitomises everything that is good about small seaside town museums.Whilst Shoreham is unlikely to be a major tourist destination,if you are in the town it is worth taking the trouble to have a look in.I am sure you will find it as worthwhile as i did.
