hings to do in Emsworth - Visit the Museum

Located in North Street, the Museum, opened in1988, was formed to archive and display the history of Emsworth and its surroundings, to make the public aware of Emsworth's historical position. The Museum is entirely run by volunteers, and has a selection of the area's history displayed in articles, books, pictures, clothing ships models. 

There are  displays devoted to the old sea-faring families, and to the author P.G.Wodehouse who lived in Emsworth and incorporated several local names into his books.





The museum The Museum is open

at the following times between April & October: Saturday 10:30-4:30, Sunday 2:30-4:30, Fridays in August 2.30-4.30pm and on Bank Holidays.

Covid-19 Pandemic

As a result of the directive from the Government and its advisors the Emsworth Museum will not open on 4th April 2020.
We are very sad that this has become necessary because we have worked hard over the winter to update and improve the displays in the Main Room and we were looking forward to showing them to local residents as well as visitors to Emsworth. Some of the items have not been on view previously and show a new aspect of Emsworth’s history.
In addition the displays by local groups planned for the David Rudkin Room have been postponed.
At the moment we don’t know how long this closure will last but as soon as we can re-open the door and invite you in we are ready to do so.
The website www.emsworthmuseum.org.uk  will be updated from time to time.
If you have any questions about this please email info@emsworthmuseum.org.uk  or telephone 01243 378091.
