We spent three hours wandering about the buildings and grounds. The working windmill was fascinating and the guides were helpful. Thanks

A wonderful day out, spent 3 hours wandering around, so much to see, but compact site. Fantastic watching cannon and trebuchet firing. Recognised many buildings and items from our youth, oh dear, that makes us sound very old. Tea rooms do plenty of light snacks for lunch, their soup and bread and bacon sandwiches are recommended.

When I was younger, I used to go here a lot, with many family. I have recently been back and it's nice to see the collection of historic buildings just keeps on growing. I really would recommend this for all the family, on a nice sunny day a picnic is advised.

Must say this was better than expected. There is a massive site in Cardiff that houses buildings from all over Wales so we thought after it, this might be a bit of a let down but nothing of the sort. Yes it is reasonably small but the buildings are well laid out and with bags of information displayed about each.... More

We came here about 2 or 3 years ago and decided to come back for another visit this afternoon. The entry price was reasonable considering the number of things to see here and the staff/volunteers are friendly (which is a real bonus!) There is a great collection of over 30 buildings including a merchants house, a communal privy, a mission... More

The rescued buildings in the grounds of this museum cover a vast period of time, and have great variety. Something for everyone. I preferred it to the Weald & Downland Museum in Sussex, and St Fagin's in Wales.

Brilliant and really interesting museum. It showcases building that may have been listed but this does not guarantee their existence forever. Lots of interesting knowledge of what to me is working class heritage. Went with a friends, we took our own picnic and spent a whole afternoon visiting all of the different buildings. I loved the toll house best but... More

A small but interesting open air museum which with a range of exhibits. Whilst not on the same scale as the likes of Beamish or the Black Country museum, Avoncroft provided a good few hours entertainment. The museum is probably best visited in the summer and the special event days offer some interesting further exhibits. Worth a visit and could... More

There was twenty odd different buildings ranging from 15th century town houses to windmills a even... More
