The award winning Chiltern Open Air Museum is a great day out for families, with a 45 acre site to run around and explore. There are over 30 rescued historic buildings on display, including an Iron Age House, 1940s prefab, Victorian earth cottage and blacksmith’s forge. Families can explore the woodland trail and can even borrow a backpack full of activities for children to enjoy whilst on site. Visitors are encouraged to touch and explore the buildings and artefacts. There are plenty of opportunities to dress up, play with historic toys and games, build models of the barns and lots of space to run around and discover.

During school holidays the Museum holds Terrific Tuesdays and puts on lots of themed family crafts, games and activities. Kids love playing in the heritage adventure playground, inspired by the Museum’s historic buildings, they can hide in the Anderson shelter, slide out of the Shepherds hut, climb the Toll house and then go and explore the real thing!

The Museum has a historic working farm that is home to chickens, goats, sheep, cows, heavy horses and farm cats, and is run using traditional farming techniques and equipment.

The Museum also hosts a programme of exciting events throughout the year, including Roman Gladiators, Ragged Victorians and Vicious Vikings. The Museum takes part in ‘Museums at Night’ and opens for a special magical night time opening in May with an Enchanted theme and a night of Halloween fun in October.

The Museum is a popular filming venues and has been used in the filming of CBBC’s Horrible Histories, Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife.
