Museum learning - the Iron Age

Learning is a lifelong experience and at Chiltern Open Air Museum we provide many fun and focused learning opportunities. Families are very welcome and there are many opportunities to explore both our historic buildings and woodland areas see our Top 10 things to do on your visit.


We run an extensive, unique and award winning schools’ programme. At certain times of year our workshops and theme days are heavily oversubscribed so we would recommend contacting us well before your preferred date to secure a booking.
