Petworth Cottage Museum

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, venues and exhibitions are closed until further notice. We recommend checking with the venues' own websites for up-to-date information. Petworth Museum is not really a museum. It is a house which has been restored, redecorated, furnished, and equipped as if it were 1910, when it was the home of Mrs Mary Cummings. Mary was the tenant of 346 High Street from 1901 to 1930, and the reconstruction takes account of the living memories of Mary's time here, her Irish Catholic background and her work as a seamstress at home and at Petworth House. We have always aimed to make the place feel as if Mrs Cummings has just stepped out. The range is lit, the table is laid for tea, the kettle is boiling.
