OUR MUSEUM

Built with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and money raised by the local community, East Grinstead Museum invites you to discover the old market town and surrounding area.

The town’s first museum opened in March 1926 in the St Swithun’s Church tower under the care of the then vicar, the Reverend Golding Golding-Bird. His collection began with a set of grappling irons, stored at the Church for accessibility. The interest they sparked gave him the idea of a town museum. Its collection was small but included photographs, paintings, tokens and First World War objects, amongst others.
