Lots to see spread over quite an extensive outdoor site. It is quite a surprise to find this museum tucked away behind Morrison's. There are lots of different buildings to visit including the windmill, forges, granary toll house and jail. The prefab was particularly interesting - and we enjoyed the miniature railway trip! Worth a visit!

We had a great time here from climbing up into the windmill to see its working and hearing its history, to visiting the Manor House and feeling how it would have been to live there in medieval times. Loved it will difinately visit again.

This place is a wonderful trip down memory lane as well as an eye opening insight into times past. From the collection of phone boxes through the decades to the wonderful windmill this place has something for everybody. Even our young children enjoyed themselves. Genuinely one of the finest attractions in the area.

Visited to look at old buildings and have sandwiches, coffee and cake at the tea shop. All are very good. In addition we have viewed films shown outside, which is a great experience. It is a memorable experience, with a band playing first.

Had a great time going round the various buildings. The kids loved the phone boxes. Cheap compared to other places. Well worth a visit.

This museum consists of around 30 historic buildings mainly from Worcestershire and the midlands. Many are former farm buildings reflecting the rural nature of the county. Almost all the buildings are accessible. Other exhibits include a post war prefab, a timbered pub now the Edwardian tearoom, a chainmakers forge, a toll house, jail cells, a dovecote, a windmill, a corrugated... More

Took my dad here for a birthday treat. He used to be a builder and I thought he would like it. He did. I enjoyed it also though you do need a fair weather day as it is all outside. Nice little trip through time and a different take on a museum. I believe they do a lot activity days... More

We went to Avencroft with both children and grandparents for the day. It was interesting and fun for everyone. The children loved playing in a display of telephone boxes through the ages, phoning each other receiving and a phonecall from Dr Who! The old buildings are fascinating and were brought to life with people in period costumes. The highlight of... More
