Visited on 30th July with 2 kids age 8 & 10. We arrived around 12 and left just gone 4. Had hours of fun decorating biscuits , making “noise makers” & hunting for 8 “lost”cherries .
Don’t forget to say hello to the goats ! We first meet them only a few days old and they are now a must see at every visit....

Fabulous visit with young children. Lovely and relaxed with plenty to see.
Lots of activities for young visitors. There's a full calendar of events and we just missed a Gladiator day! Gift shop is packed with lovely presents. Overall a great visit and well worth the small entrance fee.

We visited Chiltern Open Air Museum as a family of four on one of the hottest days of the year. We had a great day, which was added to by the Car Show we hadn’t realised was on.
When we arrived we walked straight to the opposite end of the site to the cafe, but found the food offered wasn’t particularly family friendly, and it’s a small cafe. Luckily there was a bbq open back by the main square, but dragging hungry children back wasn’t ideal. Plus, we hadn’t taken much cash as we had assumed the cafe would cater for children. (Fine if they’ll eat a jacket potato or sandwich).
It was great to see a variety of salvaged buildings in beautiful surroundings, I particularly liked seeing the chapel and the prefab.

Had visited the musuem before, our grandsons had not been before so on Sunday 22 July we took them, also at the musuem they were holding a vintage car, bike bicycle show. What a surprise so much more work had been done with many more completed houses. We loved exploring inside the houses and the lovely planted up gardens. Sitting under the welcoming shade of the tree and listening to the live music, was lovely. Great tea cafe with lunches and of course the cake. Great work that all these volunteers are doing, thank you for a great visit.

What a great place this is. We wouldn't have known of it if it hadn't been in the Gardeners World 2 for 1 book so our card was put to good use yet again. Spent a couple of hours looking at all the different buildings and gardens and had a nice coffee and cake at the little cafe. Well worth a visit.
