The new Crawley Museum opened to visitors in July 2018. It is open every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:30am to 4pm and every Sunday from 2 to 4:30pm.
Located in the High Street, the Tree has been sensitively restored, the Annexe fitted out to house the Education Room and the link provides a welcoming environment for visitors with a temporary exhibition to showcase the talent and diversity of Crawley.
The biggest object going on display will be the 1903 Rex Forecar which was kindly donated to the museum by Rex Shaw.
The increased size of the new museum will also enable more of Crawley’s historical items to be displayed.
Crawley Museum Society will operate the new service with financial support from the council.

In 2013 the council put together a Heritage Lottery Fund application and were subsequently awarded £1.15m to provide a new museum for Crawley. Using The Tree and The Tree Annexe was seen as a great opportunity to improve heritage in Crawley with its central location, architectural quality and preserve a Grade II listed building.
Work started in November 2015 after Stoneham Construction Ltd, Crawley-based RDjW Architects and historic buildings consultants Oxley Conservation were appointed to refurbish the listed building.
