“An interesting collection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I feel it is a shame the museum has had to change premises this year, which may detract visitors seeing as it is not in the central shopping area now. It has a wonderful collection of local historical pieces and run by a friendly volunteer group of staff. Well worth a visit.

“Beautifully laid out, well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Since this museum has moved to West Street it is not so easy to find, but it is well worth hunting it out because you will enjoy your visit, as we did. The history of Bognor is viewed through the little shop fronts and on each visit you will spot something new that you missed last time! The wireless collection will certainly bring back memories. Wake up, Arun Council, and get more signage on the lamposts, etc. so that more visitors to Bognor are able to find this delightful museum. It is so nice to see something interesting which is FREE.

“Bognor's best kept secret!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

If you want to see exhibits in modern steel and glass cabinets under bright lights, and not know what it is you are looking at, then this is probably not the place to go!!!!

However, if you want to see an eclectic array of items, helping to tell the story of possibly the most famous seaside resort outside of Blackpool, then this is a must.

Mock shop fronts, bearing names of Bognor shops long gone, will bring the memories flooding back for the old and not so old. The Wireless Museum conjures up of visits to Aunts who had radiograms with lit up panels listing far off glamorous places such as Luxembourg.

Please go along - you will not be disappointed - I promise you, or your money back. Oh yes, it's free too!

This great little museum is very well laid out and interesting.
There is no admission charge, but please make a donation in the little box as it is well worth it .

“Bognor Regis Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great to see the museum in a decent 'home'. Was a pub and still serving the public, but with the past rather than pints.
Well worth a visit, and it's free!
