Wonderful small museum close to Cathedral. My grandchildren were enthralled from start to finish from Roman Centurions to Space Travel all in a matter of a couple of hours. Well worth a visit.

Took my niece and nephew here to the Tim Peake exhibition and thoroughly enjoyed it, really well presented and interesting and a fun way to learn for children. Well worth a visit and take a look at the other rooms at the same time as also really interesting....and was free!

We recently visited The Science Museum to see the spacecraft that Tim Peake returned to earth in, so when I saw an advert for Southdowns Sky at Night included an exhibit at this museum, it seemed a good idea to see the start of his story with him being a local boy. A tiny museum of a side street opposite... More

I visited the Novium in the morning. The reception area had the usual well stocked gifts shop along with a small coffee shop. On the ground floor was an exhibition of roman items and remains. The second floor was an exhibition of the Tim Peake exploration into space. This was well presented and took me over an hour to view... More

The kids were gripped from the minute we got in! We thought we wouldn't be there for long but 2 hours later, we left for... More

Took 3 generations of my family there and was pleased to find something to spark the interest of everyone. My kids (14 and 6) liked the Tim Peake exhibition and my 6yr old particularly enjoyed the talk on how they turn wee into water in space. My parents particularly enjoyed the exhibits that directly related to the history of Chichester.... More

Family day out with two boys aged 9 and 6. Both loved it especially the 9 year old who was stimulated for at least a couple of hours. Lovely venue in a lovely city, great day out

A brilliant exhibit for families and space enthusiasts. It might be small but they pack a lot in. Super friendly staff and the Airbus presenter aka 'space geek' is brilliant. Dressing up fun for little ones (and grown ups) too. Loved it.
