Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft is home to a permanent collection that showcases the work of artists and craftspeople living and working in Ditchling – a village which nurtured some of the 20th century’s most innovative and creative ideas in crafts and design.

The museum presents two new exhibitions a year. A thriving learning programme accompanies the exhibitions, offering a range of activities for all ages. It’s been shortlisted for Museum of Year and received Silver in the 2022 Beautiful South Tourism Awards for Small Visitor Attraction of the Year.
