Our Museum is a unique, 26-acre real-life setting for telling stories. Open-air museums like ours don't create galleries and exhibition halls with cases and labels: they build landscapes, workshops, alleyways, backyards and streets where things happen.
As a registered educational charity and an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we must raise 100% of our running costs through earned income, such as admissions fees. We can only continue to bring 300 years of history to life with the much-needed support from businesses, trusts and foundations, community groups and generous individuals like you.
