I have to visit every year, ever since I was a child. It's an astonishing place where historic buildings have been taken down brick by brick and re built perfectly. For children (and adults alike) it just brings so many snapshots in history alive in a way that books and even films just can't. From the old ice house to... More

I absolutely love this place. I make an effort to take my kids at least twice a year. The grounds are beautiful especially on a sunny day! We always do something different on each visit. Can't wait for next year!

Took our 7 year old grandson on the "Search for Santa" event this afternoon. Along with 10 other children, he was given an old penny to exchange for the "Daily Snowflake" newspaper at the Counting House where, as "snow" fell, the search started promptly at 2:30pm. We went in and out of various historical buildings on the site, made paper... More

plenty to see, and make sure you take your time to wander slowly. Have been twice. Once was for a themed WW2 weekend which was truly excellent.

We spent three hours wandering around this really interesting museum last Saturday. Highlights are the windmill, the medieval house, the prefab house and prefab church. There are many other buildings all with lots of information about their history and how the building was rescued. One other really interesting section of the museum is the large collection of telephone booths, until... More

We (Late 60s couple) came on sat 6th december for the nighttime opening. It was great. Arrived at 6.45 and there was already a queue for the 7.00 opening. Some actors in period costume kept us ammused with cheeky banter. Not been here for over 30 years and glad we came. Because of the dark there was a mysterious air... More

Even the young children will love running around this historic site of rebuilt period buildings. Look out for their activity days.

An excellent array of very old buildings, their history and fame details. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff and a super memorabilia shop. Well worth a visit but do not rush the visit as there really is so much to see and take in.

We had a groupon voucher which made it an excellent value trip out. We visited on a Saturday at the end of November when it was quiet and pleasant. There is an interesting selection of buildings of different ages and types. The information on each building is very well presented and there is a good selection of artefacts which can... More

Thank you for your lovely review. You are right that people do need to take care when walking around historic buildings, as Health & Safety regs in the past were not what they are now! More
