    • An outstanding collection of historic buildings, rescued from destruction and rebuilt in 45 acres of beautiful Chilterns landscape. Explore the buildings including a 1940s Prefab from Amersham, a Victorian Vicarage Room from Thame, and a 19th-century earth cottage from Haddenham. Discover the working historic Chilterns farm and meet the animals, including three lovely heavy horses, a flock of rare-breed Oxford Down sheep, English goats and two young short-horn cows. There are special events throughout the season (March-October), including Roman Gladiators, Medieval Life, Ragged Victorians, Vicious Vikings, Tudor Farming, Classic Vehicles Show, a spectacular Halloween event, and several events focusing on heavy horses and traditional agriculture. An Annual Pass, valid for 12 months during Museum opening times, includes entry to almost every event and only costs £30 for an adult (range of concession, joint and family passes available). The Museum relies on the support of over 200 volunteers, and more are always welcome! Please email for more information about volunteering.
