A replacement for the defunct Chichester District Museum, the Novium opened in summer 2012 and its collections span the illustrious history of the city from prehistoric periods onwards. The building is purpose-built to allow you to see the remains of a Roman Bathhouse discovered on the site and from the moment you walk through the glass door entrance, the incredibly light, airy space lends a wow factor. Expect to see all sorts of items that link the people of Chichester through the ages with the times they lived in, from prehistoric flint tools that chart man’s progress from hunter-gatherer to farmer to an 18th century gaol door. Chichester also has a pirate legacy, which may spark curiosity in the little ones too.
