Mothering Sunday-Mums Enter Free! 11 March

 Mothering Sunday is a great time to visit the Museum, where you can enjoy an activity-packed alternative to traditional celebrations.
All mums and grandmothers enter the Museum free of charge on this special day!

Throughout the day visitors can watch and take part in a range of activities including:

Why not enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch at our waterside café? Afternoon tea requires advance booking and payment – booking details to follow soon.

The Museum is home to a fascinating collection of over 50 rescued rural buildings set in a beautiful 40-acre site within the South Downs National Park, where visitors can discover the stories of the people who lived and worked in them from Anglo-Saxon to Edwardian times. There is a lot to see including: homes and historic gardens, farm animals and farming heritage, crafts and trade workshops, beautiful woodland, pasture and wildflower meadows.

The Museum’s waterside café, Wattle and Daub, will be open from 9.30am – 4pm and is dog friendly. There are also outdoor picnic areas. Dogs on leads are welcome and there is ample free parking. Visitors with disabilities are advised to see our accessibility page in advance of their visit.
