Check this tutorial - Adobe Muse - How to Horizontal Scroll which tells about horizontal scrolling.
Please mind that for making this effect you will have to go with traditional adaptive (fixed width layout) as scroll effects are disabled in the responsive(fluid width) layout.
Thanks for the suggestion. I checked out the tutorial and this is an interesting effect, but isn't quite what I'm after. As far as I can tell this works for complete pages, with some trickery to show the pages scrolling horizontally instead of vertically (although the scroll action is vertical) ... as I say, an interesting effect and I may try it sometime.

What I am trying to do is to have a series of pages (articles) which may be longer than a single screen and which readers can scroll down, but which they can swipe left or right on a tablet to get to the next 'article', like a magazine, rather than have to click a link or menu.
Is this possible?
I think that you cannot achive this kind of behavior in Muse. Maybe you could check for the existence of some plugin that can do the trick...
I am beginning to think you might be right. I'll see if there are any third party widgets which may do the trick. Meanwhile, I'll leave this hanging in case someone else has stumbled across a solution.
You can make a website with one page and use the widget composition. Or look at the QooQee Adobe Muse Responsive Widgets | Muse Themes | Muse Templates and free Muse products.
They had a widget similar to what you need. Unfortunately I do not remember what it is called
