A rainy day at the seaside, so opted to visit a local museum. Fantastic friendly staff and cute little museum. Kids loved it, although you won’t be there for hours, worth an hour of your time,

Small but packed with everything from 1930s kitchen to old radios and packaging with a wide variety of pre historic items and documents about how it became Regis and the origin of Bugger Bognor' Excellent bookshop/gift shop and delightful people running this free museum

The museum is quite small but packs in a lot. The volunteers are friendly and helpful, and there's no admission charge (though I did donate). Well worth a visit.
