Children and Families
Crawley Museum and Ifield Watermill welcome children and families as visitors
All our public areas are accessible to visitors with pushchairs. Subject to space, pushchairs can be parked in the downstairs lobby area. We have three individual toilets, one of which has baby changing facilities. We offer a small indoor refreshments area where you can eat your own snacks, as well as a small outdoor space where you can eat when the weather is nice. There are refreshment machines available for tea and coffee. If you or your child struggles with stairs, there is a lift to the first floor with space for a buggy or wheelchair. We encourage our younger visitors to get involved with the hands-on craft activities, and the older ones too! Crawley Museum's shop carries a range of reasonably priced souvenir items for children, such as games, books and toys.
Crawley Museum runs a variety of activities for families, children and young people. The Learning Space is usually open to all visitors. There are hands on activities in the Learning Space, including art and craft..
The Watermill has internal stairs which unfortunately make upper levels unsuitable for pushchairs, however, pushchairs can be safely left on the ground floor. The Watermill has one fully accessible toilet which doesn't have specific baby-changing facilities, the entrance to the toilet is outside the building. There is an outside area when you can sit and enjoy the surroundings, and eat any snacks you've brought with you. The Watermill has a small selection of souvenir items for sale.
