The Novium has now opened and visitors have been enjoying the new thematic exhibitions focusing on places and people in Chichester District. Some favourite objects remain highlights of the exhibitions including the Municipal Moon lantern which first came into the museum’s collection in 1830.

New bespoke display cases contain atmospherically sensitive objects including Saxon spear heads and Roman weaponry, which until now have been unable to be displayed. The objects reveal the history of the district as a site of invasion and stories of the people who settled here.
