‪We visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum on an autumn weekend. Once past the two sets of security guards for the $200m+ Apple TV film production of ” Masters of the Air” we thought the museum must be closed as the car park was almost empty, but it was not, just not very busy.

The site contains more than 30 rescued buildings spanning two millennia of local history. My favourite buildings (in no particular order) were the 1826 High Wycombe Toll House, the Edwardian public toilets (whose period sound effects were a bit off-putting when try to go about one’s business) and the Iron Age Roundhouse. I believe the museum also has more than a dozen buildings in store waiting for the funds for them to be re-built. The most amazing thing to see was the Cherry Pickers Ladder (one of which I think was 18m long).

We enjoyed making a candle at a workshop at the far end of the site – but felt sorry for the guy running it as we saw no-one else in that part of the museum (the café that used to be there was closed).

Whilst this museum may be smaller than the similar Weald and Downland Living Museum at Singleton in West Sussex (home of the TV programme “The Repair Shop”) it was definitely worth a visit.‬

‪Well… a game of two halves. We were greeted by a receptionist (Saturday, 12:30am) who immediately and assertively challenged us for proof of our 2 for 1 vouchers. I was surprised by this as the website was unclear and I thought the ticket I had printed was the entry voucher. The receptionist was indignant, cold and unfriendly and we very nearly turned around and left. I asked the receptionist to calm down and we willingly paid another entry fee without further argument from our side. It left a very unpleasant vibe just as we arrived.
From thereon things improved. The volunteers inside the venue were all very friendly and informative. We had never visited before and the volunteers managed to save the day.
I would suggest the front of house staff could do with some training on customer care.‬

‪My wife and I visited the site in Sept 2021, we enjoyed the visit but have one or two observations, The Museum is not very well signposted and could easily be missed, There were only 3 disabled parking spaces, and the car park was very rough and rocky, if the visitor is Disabled they may have difficulty getting around, my wife uses a small powered scooter and she found that the paths were very rough and rocky, if a person is using a normal wheelchair it would be very uncomfortable for them or whoever is pushing them, We could not see any Accesible Toilets, but the site Cafe was closed so the toilets could have been there , saying that the cafe is at the very far end of the site.
The buildings were well looked after, but more information about them is needed, items seemed to be just left in them with no information about them at all.
Staff were excellent, friendly and always asking if help was required
we had a good few hours there, but I feel that a good opportunity is missing by just a little more thought and planning,‬

‪What an excellent day we had. Tuesday is family day at the museum in the Buckinghamshire holidays. Extra activities are available for children. Today there was clay face making, nature crowns and craft bags to take home. My 6 yo loved the Victorian school as they have been learning about it in Y1. She went back three times to play with the toys and be a strict Victorian teacher!! Also loved the animals and exploring the house. Plenty of free parking and space for picnics. Toilets spread across area.‬

‪Simply a lovely family day out, We where lucky enough to be there whilst a reenactment was taking place which my son absolutely loved, but the real highlight was the sheep dog display.‬

‪We spent a lovely four hours here on Bank Holiday Monday with our son, a 9 year old lover of History! He has been learning about Invaders and Settlers, so we booked for the Romans Day which was great fun - the re-enactment and archery display was a highlight, although sadly our gladiator lost, poor Marcus! The weather was beautiful and we had a lovely time picnicking on the village green and visiting the houses at our own pace; the prefabs and the Iron Age house were our favourites (with thanks to the lady who talked us through the Iron Age house, our son was really fascinated by what she told us). The museum is even doggy friendly so our four legged fluffy could come along too, she really rated the cheddar cheese and sweet potato ice cream (we preferred the mint choc chip!)

One thing - our son is disabled, he uses a wheelchair and walks with a frame. It does say clearly on the website that the museum may not be accessible in all places. I have taken school classes to the museum before but never noticed with a class of able-bodied children that the paths are really difficult to manage with a wheelchair, they are very stony in places. The grass throughout was also very long and it was a struggle at times for us to push his chair and for our son to walk about in his frame. We managed, because we always do, and it didn't affect our overall enjoyment of the day, but cutting the grass (or some paths in the grass!) would be helpful for those with access needs, and there could possibly be improvements made to some of the paths too, especially leading down to the Toll House. The whole museum is beautiful, you really do feel like you've entered a time capsule when you come back out, but perhaps some work to make it more accessible and to bring that up to 2021 standards wouldn't hurt (I knocked one star off for this alone, because it matters to us!)‬

‪This was my first visit to the open air museum but it will not be my last. Although it was cold and catering was only outdoors, this is clearly a delightfully place for a summer picnic or to relax with friends. There are some remarkable buildings too. A reconstruction of a Iron Age Hut, public toilets from Caversham (!) a tollgate and toll cottage and many other buildings mostly from the 18th or 19th century. The site specializes in farm buildings such as barns - which I found less interesting than period houses - although the 60 foot high cherry picking ladders were a highlight!
It was quite difficult to find this site because of road diversions when we visited early in May but it is a very pleasant place and is clearly well cared for by devoted volunteers and deserves support. Interesting enough for children - especially on special days when they can dress up.‬

‪Visited today with a 5 year old and 15 month old for the first time, and it was just lovely. Intended to go for a ‘couple of hours’, ended up being there for six! We had sunshine and just ambled around at our own pace, taking in the well preserved and cared for historic buildings, animals, refreshments on the village green, kids play area and woodland walk with bluebells. Kids loved the freedom to roam in the open spaces and the mixture of things to see. Topped off with really friendly staff and volunteers. A request has already been made by the five year old to return. Thank you COA Museum!‬
