Cannon Hall Museum Cawthorne
#1 of 2 Museums in Cawthorne
Excellent museum, well worth a visit (even free admission) but the added bonus of seeing the actual Downton costumes was a bonus.
Loads of room to roam! Museum is free but the kids wanted to head to the farm, but us adults enjoyed it ️ The Farm Shop is AMAZING!

We always leave a good donation to museums and left a little extra because of the free parking.
The exhibition of Picasso Linocuts from The British Museum is well worth a visit.

This museum is a real gem and words alone cannot do justice to the building, its fascinating contents and the friendly ambience.

a really quirky little village museum, full of all kind of curiosities, staff extremely knowledgeable, a real look back in time.
The museum contains a wide variety of historical oddities, from Japanese riot control weapons to taxidermised mutant animals.

A great day out and justly a winner of the Museum of the year award last year.
So much more enjoyable than walking around an indoor museum, getting some exercise outside with sheep nibbling the edges of the exhibits!

You can look around the sheds and the small on-site museum to learn more of the origins of this well preserved railway.
