It is difficult to believe that Steyning Museum used to be crammed into such a small space. Visitors have so much more to see and our volunteer stewards have taken a real pride in showing it off. Behind the scenes, the growing number of precious items is better stored for future generations. Perhaps the most exciting development is the increased community involvement which the extension has made possible. Here is a last look at the new facilities.

Here is one of the temporary exhibitions which attract visitors back to the museum on a regular basis.

The extension is full of interesting displays, which can be moved aside for meetings and activities.

Some of the new permanent exhibits, such as the cobbler's bench and Steyning Man, are popular additions for which there was no space before the extension was built.

Storage space for objects and documents is easier to access and more efficient.
