Come along during the Easter Holidays, when we will be open Wednesday to Sunday! Explore our Museum and follow our family STEAM trail around the 36 acres site.
On Sunday 7 April, you can enjoy our annual Vintage Car Show, when over one hundred and fifty cars made before 1956 will be assembling at the Museum – With the cars on show from 10 am until 4pm, when they will leave in an organised procession. There will be a rare opportunity to view and hear luxury, sporting and the everyday cars of a long past era of motoring when every journey was an experience and driving was, by no means, always a comfortable pastime.
On Sunday 14 April, we will be holding our Spring Industrial Trains day, with narrow-gauge action on the Museum’s railway, plus demonstrations runs with the Road Machine contractors’ monorail, and one of our resident steam trains in action to enjoy a ride on the railway in the 36 acre site.
Then over the Easter Weekend, including Easter Monday, families can enjoy a visit to the Museum, follow the Easter Trail and take part in activities around the Museum. We are home to the only traditional working print shop in the South of England, where you can have a go at printing your own souvenir certificate to take home. Also, on the Wednesday’s you can have a go at wood turning in the wood turners’ workshop. Children will be supervised by our skilled volunteers to have a go at turning out small wooden ornaments. We also have our resident potters on site, where children can have a go with their play with clay activities. Where most activities are included in our admission price, there may be some small fees for some special activities, and donations are always welcome.
Located 10 minutes from Arundel in the heart of the South Downs National Park, you can discover the South’s working past. Learn about over 150 years of our culture and heritage, and have fun riding around our Museum on our historic buses and narrow gauge railway.
Our exhibits include our historic lime kilns, which are Scheduled Ancient Monuments, and original buildings from the days our site was a working chalk quarry. In our BT Connected Earth display, children can have fun learning about the history of communications and have a go on the old telephone switchboards. Our Electricity hall has a working model of a Tesla Coil, where demonstrations can be held by our volunteers when available. With over 40 exhibits to explore, there is so much to see in any weather.
Our main open season is from the 6 March until 3 November, when we will be open from Wednesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays. With so much to discover, learn and have fun, you will want to come back! Visit www.amberleymuseum.co.uk now, to plan your v
