Following a lengthy closure due to the Covid Pandemic, Newhaven Museum is now well and truly up-and-running again. Visitors will see a brand-new entrance and reception area, thanks to a grant from Central Government, and a new sales area has been installed with many local interest books for sale. The photo archive of over 10,000 images of the area has now been updated and these are available by searching on a computer for any name or location. At the press of a button, the photos will be displayed. There is also the option of buying copies at a small cost.

The parent organisation of the museum, The Newhaven Historical Society, is holding its AGM on Tuesday the 3rd of August at 7.30pm at the Hillcrest Centre, after which there will be two presentations of old Newhaven photographs. Stephan Storoszko will be demonstrating how the photo archive can be used to track down specific images of people and places, and Jenny Flood will present “Newhaven - Then and Now”, using images from the museum’s collection. Non-members are welcome to attend - £5.00 entry. There’s also the option of joining the Society for £8.00 for a year. This gives unlimited free entry to both Newhaven and Seaford Museums, together with free entry to five interesting talks each year at The Hillcrest Centre.

The museum opening times, until the end of October, are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday – 11.00am to 4.00pm. and admission is £3.00 for non-members with free entry for accompanied children under 16 years of age.

Why not call in and say hello to the volunteers who keep this much valued town asset open for your interest and enjoyment?

Newhaven Museum is located next to Paradise Park in Avis Road, Newhaven.
