Amberley Museum is a 36 acre site with over 40 exhibits to visit, dedicated to the industrial heritage of the South East of England. There is so much to discover, learn and have fun in any weather. Exhibits include the BT Connected Earth communications building where you can play hands on with old telephones. The Electricity hall provides electricity demonstrations and hands on activities for adults and children. In the working print shop you can have a go at printing your own name and take home a souvenir. The history of the site itself is displayed in the Life of Lime exhibition, as the lime kilns on site date back to when it was a working chalk quarry.
The Museum is also home to traditional crafts people such as the wheelwrights and blacksmith, and there are different craftspeople demonstrating each day. You can also take a ride on the Museums very own narrow gauge railway, with their collection of trains from electric to steam running on different days. They also have historic buses that you can jump aboard to explore around the museum. They have over 50 events planned each season, from classic car shows, rail galas, bus shows and family activity days.
With their own on-site cafÃ© serving hot and cold food, there are also picnic areas available around the site. The Museum is accessibility friendly and dogs are also welcome on site but must be kept on a lead at all times.
