Cute little museum of local history with loads of interesting things. Portraying family life in the country and tools that were used, local trades and services, local art and artists, costumes and so on. The bird collection is supposed to be the largest in Kent.

Although we are local we hadn't visited for ages and not since its refurbishment. Had forgotten how much there was to see - lots of exhibits, mainly relating to local industries such as wool, hops etc. All contained over 3 floors in a wonderful 15th century house, set in a quiet little garden and tucked away behind the high street....

We're not great fans of museums, but this one was well worth the visit and we spent longer there than anticipated. Provides so much really interesting history of Cranbrook and the local area through the ages in a comfortable and not too taxing way.

If you are in Cranbrook or you are tracing family history in the area this is a great place to go. Lots of old maps and info and pictures. We found 2 ancestors I was tracing on Ancestry who we knew lived in Cranbrook on information held here. It is very cheap to visit too, literally a donation.

Cranbrook Museum is packed full of interesting items and facts about life in Cranbrook in days gone by. The building itself is delightful and the volunteers very helpful. Extraordinary collection of birds!

Kept going by a team of keen volunteers, this little museum was very varied and interesting. Open only from Tuesday to Saturday from 2 to4.30. A beautiful garden surrounds the old house. It is mainly devoted to the industrial and craft history of Cranbrook, but there are also sections on life in the past and some costumes. There is a... More

So many things to see. Really need all day to take all the info in ones little grey cells. Of course that means one can go lots of times and always find something you did not see on previous visit. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable.

Arrived at museum whilst following a walking tour of the town. A beautiful building full of local history. Kind volunteer staff very informative. Well worth a visit to gain an insight of how important Cranbrook once was.

Thought we'd have a quick look at a small local collection, but was there for a couple of hours (they should have closed earlier, but were too polite to chuck us out!). On three rickety floors and with about a dozen rooms of varying sizes, the building itself is an interesting exhibit. Local characters have donated their collections of work... More
