Mums go free this Mothers Day at Amberley Museum

Mothers Day 2023

Amberley Museum Mothers Day activities

Any mum visiting Amberley Museum on Mothers Day can enjoy free admission to the Museum and enjoy a fun packed day out with special activities.

Mums can get involved with various volunteer-led activities happening across the Museum including operating a manual switchboard, driving a smaller diesel locomotive and making a keepsake in the pottery, print shop or woodturners.

The Museum is home to the only traditional working print shop in the South of England, where mums can have a go at printing a keepsake, and children can have a go at printing one too. West Sussex Woodturners will also be offering the opportunity to have a go at wood turning, by creating your own wooden ornament to take home.

Mums and children can also have a go at pottery with the resident potter, who will be offering a chance to make a heart or flower. (There is an additional charge of £2 per person for this activity).

Visit the craft market with talented local craftspeople demonstrating and selling their products and treat mum to a light lunch or a Mothers Day cream tea and prosecco for two for £16.50 in the Limeburners Café.

A travel around the site on one of the narrow-gauge trains and classic buses is free and included with admission.

Tickets must be pre-booked online for this special Mothers Day event on Sunday 19th March. Make sure to book mum a complimentary admission ticket.

Where most activities are included in our admission price, there may be some small fees for some special activities, and donations are always welcome.
