This Museum is home to some incredible structures and buildings. Rich in history, it is an incredible venue to explore. Live a memorable adventure in the 19 acres of the open air museum. There is even a wildflower meadow open from April to September! Enjoy a traditional cider and discover the entire collection. Open daily, there is a great event calendar for all. With many fun activities to take part in, it is recommended that you download the map of the museum's grounds and buildings prior to your visit so that you can plan your day adequately.
Here at the Avoncroft Museum you will embark on a journey that encapsulates both history and the people that lived within those difficult times. I have only come across a small number of these types of attractions whilst writing my Top 100 Attractions range of books and each has left a very special place in my heart for the hard work they do, Avoncroft is no different. Opened in 1967, the team here have worked tirelessly to recreate and lovingly restore over 30 of their buildings and if it were not for the foresight and enthusiastic of the Avoncroft team, these buildings would of been deleted from history itself. I found the staff very friendly here and the ticket price very reasonable indeed. Open all year round, there is something for everyone here and I guarantee that once visited, you will want to visit again and again, such is the magic of this attraction.
