the museum is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from May to September, or by arrangement.
The Museum takes part in Kent’s Big Weekend and the Heritage Open Days in September, and also hosts an exhibition of small stationary engines run by a local group of enthusiastic collectors in September.
The museum's collections are based almost entirely on Kent agriculture, and appeal to people of all ages. The museum is great for children, as many items in the collection show how things which are taken for granted today were made in the past. The museum shows how the land was ploughed, the seed sown, the crop reaped and then processed to make it ready for turning into flour.
In addition to a spectacular 14th century barn, the museum is also home to an early 19th century oast house, and visitors are interested by the history of hop-picking, which was done in Kent largely by families from London who used the work as a holiday. Much of the relevant equipment is viewable in the oast house, together with a large collection of small tools and other items of broader interest.
