Fathers Day – Free Admission for all the Dads!


Father’s Day on Sunday 17 June is a great time to visit the Museum – all dads and grandads enter the Museum free of charge on this special day!

Visitors can watch and take part in a range of crafts, activities and demonstrations – please check this page for a full list of what’s on nearer the time.

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.
