...traditional buildings in a rural landscape that tell the story of the men, women and children who lived and worked in them over a 600-year period. You can explore the 50-acre site and visit some of our 50 exhibit buildings.  Many of our exhibit houses are furnished to recreate historic domestic interiors. We have a regular programme of domestic and craft demonstrations, including cooking in our Tudor kitchen. The Museum has an extensive artefact collection which is housed in our award-winning Downland Gridshell Building. You can walk in the woods, bring the dog, visit the lakeside café or bring a picnic. Or you might like to try a special event day, inspired by the Museum's collections, such as the Rare Breeds Show, the Festival of Steam or the Autumn Countryside Show.We also run an extensive programme of adult-education courses in traditional rural trades and crafts, historic domestic life and building conservation.
