Cuckfield Museum

The museum is housed on the first floor of the historic Queens Hall which was opened in 1981.


The museum exhibits include Gideon Mantells discovery of the first dinosaur to become known to science - the Lguanodon,  bones, photographs, archive and documentary material relating to this discovery and to the general geology of the area.

The museum is a repository of artefacts such as ceramics, paintings, photographs and maps of Cuckfield connection. Other items include furniture, domestic bygones, and a range of utilitarian and more formal garments, prints and watercolours, all of local significance.

The museum also illustrates aspects of life in and around Cuckfield, celebrating local occupations and trades such as farming, glove making, brewing and clock making.

Displays are theme changed, generally to coincide with particular local and national events, throughout the year. A small research room, with computer access, is available for research use by visitors, containing documents and books on a wide range of local and family history subjects.
