Cuckfield Museum is a small volunteer run, independent museum, housed on the first floor of historic Queen's Hall situated on Cuckfield’s medieval High Street. Wheelchair access to the first floor is provided by lift. There are toilet facilities on the ground floor.
With free admission, the Museum is solely funded from the many Patrons and Friends of the Museum, visitor contributions and donations from local organisations.
The Museum aims to reflect and provide an insight into Cuckfield’s community, culture and historic past stretching back to pre-history when dinosaurs roamed the area and where millions of years later, the settlement of Cuckfield was established.
Cuckfield’s recorded history dates back to at least 1091 according to a charter in the British Museum. It is the site of an ancient market; its church has C13th origins; many of its major buildings date back to the C16th; and its Charter was granted by Charles II in 1671. Cuckfield was also an important staging post on the London to Brighton stagecoach route during the Regency period.
