Events and Exhibitions at Cusworth Hall Museum and Park

Cusworth Hall Museum and Park is the venue for a varied program of seasonal exhibitions, events and activities linked to the history of the Hall and Park.

These sessions include the Doncaster Country Fair, vintage vehicle rallies, historic re-enactments, wildlife sessions and a range of Easter and Christmas events. Many of the events get extremely busy and you may need to book in person or by phone at the museum.


Cusworth Hall features permanent displays about the social history of the Doncaster area, showing how people in the local community lived, worked and entertained themselves over the last 250 years.

There are also temporary exhibitions which compliment the permanent displays and showcase our rich and varied collections.

Estate of War: Doncaster's Country Houses

This exciting new exhibition explores the impact of the First World War on Doncaster’s country houses, as they became military hospitals or sent sons and estate workers to fight on the front line. Find out how life changed for families and those below stairs during the War and the years to come.

In partnership with Doncaster 1914-18 At Home, At War.
