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.

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.
