Chiltern Open Air Museum


The 45 acre site at Chalfont St Giles, near Amersham in Buckinghamshire, is home to over 30 historic buildings reflecting life in the Chilterns over the past centuries. Only 10 minutes from the M25 west of London.

Vernacular buildings, the houses and workplaces of past generations, are disappearing every day from the landscape. In the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on London's doorstep, the pressures are particularly great. Chiltern Open Air Museum preserves and interprets the built heritage of the Chilterns that would otherwise be lost.

The Museum was founded in 1976, with the aim of rescuing threatened buildings and re-erecting them on our forty-five acre site of natural park, meadow and woodland, thereby preserving a variety of structures of historical or vernacular interest which are typical of the region.
