Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre

Amberley Museum is a 36 acre open air site set in the South Downs National Park dedicated to the industrial heritage of the south east.

Take a ride around the Museum on the narrow gauge railway and historic bus.

Exhibits include the telecommunications hall, electricity hall, working printshop, lime kilns, road steam engines, radio and TV exhibition, stationary engines and more. The Museum is also home to traditional craftspeople, such as the woodturners, wheelwrights and blacksmith, with a cafe, gift shop, nature trails and numerous picnic areas.

The Museum hosts over fifty events ranging from children’s activity days to classic vehicle shows and the ever popular ale festival. Please see our website through the link for a full list.

We open from March to the end of October, seven days a week during West Sussex school holidays and on Bank Holidays, otherwise Wednesday to Sunday.

A great place to spend the whole day, we recommend at least 4 hours to visit the museum. Great in any weather, but bring your wellies and a warm coat on a wet day.

Most of the museum is accessible with a pushchair, but some of our buses due to their age do not have the room to put them on board.

Most of the site is accessible by wheelchairs, we also have a wheelchair accessible train carriage, please contact before visit to check it is available on the day. We are a large site so we are also Autism Friendly, and we accept well behaved dogs as long as they are kept on a lead.

It may be worth checking out Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
