Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre
“Excellent day out... the best museum of its type”
twistedpretender, TripAdvisor, Oct 2015
Amberley Museum is an amazing place tucked away in the South Downs between Storrington and Arundel, with a focus on industrial and transport history, with over 40 buildings.
Most days the bus service is running as well as the narrow gauge railway which takes visitors from near the entrance right to the far end where the electricity, communications and railway exhibition halls can be found.
Further exhibits include the working printshop, lime kilns, road steam engines, radio and TV exhibition, standard gauge line, stationary engines and more.
The Museum is also home to traditional craftspeople, such as the woodturners, wheelwrights, potters and blacksmith, with a café, gift shop, playground, nature trails and numerous picnic areas.
It’s well worth a visit and there is plenty to do in all weathers.
The Museum is hosting over fifty events in 2016 ranging from children’s activity days to classic vehicle shows, craft days and steam days, and we are pleased to welcome Hawking About on chosen dates, demonstrating their owls and birds of prey.
We open from March to the end of October, Wednesday to Sunday and seven days in local school holidays. We are right next to Amberley railway station, with direct trains from London Victoria, Bognor Regis and Portsmouth (but do check nationalrail.co.uk) and we have a large, free carpark.
Please see our website for a full list of events and opening dates and times. You can also find out the days we plan on having steam trains running and group booking prices.
