Chiltern Open Air Museum’s Grounds and Gardens RE-OPEN

Chiltern Open Air Museum’s Grounds and Gardens RE-OPEN – Saturday 20th June

The Museum rescues and reconstructs historical buildings and sets them within a landscape that tells the story of traditional Chilterns ways of life, practices, and skills. The Museum’s collection of historic buildings will not yet be open, but you can still explore the 45 acre site with its period gardens, ‘Dig for Victory’ allotment, fruit orchards and woodland.

COAM’s shop and toilets will be open and you will be able to purchase hot and cold drinks and snacks from the Village Kitchen, but the Museum’s café will remain closed. There are picnic tables on site and dogs on leads are welcomed.

Additional handwashing facilities have been put in place, as well as a regular contact point cleaning schedule. All visitors must abide by social distancing measures.

The Museum is only accepting card payments for onsite products, but you can put cash in onsite donation boxes and into the Museum’s well.

All tickets must be pre-booked via the Museum’s website, where there are timed entry slots and limited ticket numbers to ensure staff and visitor safety.

Chiltern Open Air Museum is an independent charity; it’s a great opportunity to show your support by booking a ticket.

Government advice is continually changing so please check the Museum website for the latest information.

Here at hiya bucks we go on regular walks exploring the local towns, villages, public footpaths, gardens, rivers, lakes and more! We love getting out and about discovering new places to visit and we thoroughly enjoy going to local events and getting involved with the community. We hope to inspire others to step out of their daily routines and see more of our Beautiful Buckinghamshire.
