I was not sure whether this would be worth the visit but I was really very glad that I went. On a fine day it was a real pleasure to walk round the site which features a range of interesting and often quaint old buildings, many furnished inside. Some reviewers have been very negative and I suspect that if you went on a cold dull day the enjoyment would be rather less and there were few if any re-enactors / activities the day I went but there are animals, woodland walks, a cafe, farm buildings, a thatched cottage, chapel, prefab, beautiful toll house and plenty more. Unlike some reviewers I thought the Edwardian toilets were fantastic - a rescued building you can still use! It is not Blists Hill or Beamish but it is a very nice visit if you are in the Chilterns and compared to other visitor attractions the entrance fee, while hardly cheap, is not by any means excessive. Access by public transport is not too difficult - take any bus to Chalfont St Giles (from Uxbridge, Beaconsfield, Amersham or Hemel Hempstead) and get off at London Road - from there a footpath leads directly to the museum entrance in about 15-20 minutes brisk walk.
