Often described as a jewel in Doncaster’s crown, Cusworth Hall is a beautiful Grade I listed building set in acres of historic parkland. The house was built between 1740 and 1744 for local land owner William Wrightson and recent refurbishments have transformed the Hall into Heritage Doncaster’s social history museum.
Cusworth Hall Museum
From setting up home to working and socialising, the museum collections reflect the daily lives of people in Doncaster from the 18th century to the present day.
Today, visitors can step inside the Hall's Great Kitchen where many feasts were prepared and view the stunning paintings on the ceiling of the chapel. Admission to the museum is free. Opening times:
- Monday to Wednesday- 10am to 4:30pm
