Chiltern Open Air Museum

Buildings through the ages

Come and explore our historic buildings. Saved from demoloition and moved brick by brick to our country setting. it's hard to imagine that our collection of barns, granaries and evn the tin chapel have ever been anywhere else! Step back in time and get a feel of the forties in our fully furnished Prefab or experience 50 AD at the Iron Age House or walk into a picture of our rural past at the farm.

Come for the day of just a few hours. Get involved in the hands on activities - brick making, rag rug making, straw plaiting or enjoying demonstrations of blacksmithing or storytelling in the Iron Age House. You can wander along the woodland walk, have a picnic or snack in our cafe.

Open daily throughout the season. Guided tours available for groups.
