Discover the lives of our ancestors - ordinary working people. Discover their homes and the way they built them; their crops, flowers and the way they grew them; their animals and the way they raised them. Explore the Museum's farmsteads, village, Tudor kitchen, working watermill and superb collection of rescued buildings set in the glorious Sussex Downland landscape.
Walk in the woods, bring the dog, visit the lakeside cafe, or bring a picnic and choose your perfect spot by the millpond or under a beech tree.
Children are free to run, play and learn. You'll experience six centuries of our rural heritage and a great day out.
Why not try a special event day? These are packed with entertainment for all of the family and inspired by the life and times reflected at the Museum.
