Natural Science Collection
There are extensive collections, primarily of specimens from south-eastern England although there are a few rarities from elsewhere such as extinct birds from New Zealand and herbarium (plant) specimens from South Africa. Mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and marine life, insects and other invertebrates are all represented by dried, taxidermied and wet preserved specimens. There are geological, fossil and shell collections. A large proportion of the specimens comes from the personal collection of H.L.F. Guermonprez, a Bognor-based naturalist working from 1880-1921. Nearly 3,000 of his watercolours of local fauna and flora are also preserved in the collection. His meticulous documentation of his finds has given an enduring scientific value to his collection.
