Review of Marlipins Museum

Marlipins Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed May 30, 2013

When we arrived the person at the reception desk waned us that the museum would be closing in half an hour, so we needed to be quick. As it was, we were out with ten minutes to spare.

Shoreham has some fantastic local history, and the Marlipins does the best it could in the limited space available, but ultimately this is a VERY small museum. Don't plan on spending the whole afternoon there!

The museum is housed in an historic building and is worth a visit, but it is very small and even taking your time over the exhibits you will be finished quickly.

You have to pay to visit this museum and there is significantly less of interest than one would find in the (free) Worthing or Brighton museums. Therefore it's hard to recommend it above the free alternatives in the local area.

Loved the medieval building, well worth a visit if you are in Shoreham, grab a coffee afterwards at the Beach House

I have lived in Shoreham most of my life and the Marlipins Museum is a hidden gem of shoreham. It is very nice and has lots of interesting facts about shoreham's past.

Excellent set-up, went with young children from a special school. Lots of things to touch, smell and feel. Very child friendly.
