“Great day out for history buffs”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is an outdoor museum -- many historic buildings to visit, most moved to the site to same them from destruction. Really interesting if you like architectural history. There is also a reasonable good tea room and a nicely stocked shop. This one of the top three or four such outdoor museums in the UK.

“A great place to teach the kids about history”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

So much has been added since my children were small, it is a great place for the grandkids. It is really good to go when there are special events on for the children. We have an annual family ticket and easily get our monies worth. We have been at Easter and other occasions. It is particularly good to see that the Windmill is back in action. Our 7 year olds love it.

“Genuinely Good Value”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Avoncroft is a genuinely good value family day out.
Lots to see and regular 'hands on' exibits and re-enactments.
An annual pass is good value. The Edwardian tea room is well worth a visit.
Highly recommended.

“Enjoyable visit.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Overall this is a decent family day out, with interesting sights and a nice little cafe. Seeing the whole area would take a couple of hours. The cafe is great value and is child friendly.

Recommended.
