Outdoor learning at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Outdoor learning

The Museum is set on a 45 acre site in the heart of the Chilterns. We are home to a working historic farm. We have both open pasture, three ponds and native woodland and chalk grassland. We have many programs to help you engage with the outdoors: you can use your senses to explore our Museum through our Sensory Trail and fully engage with our hidden spaces by following our Orienteering Course. Our Museum is an ideal space to enjoy a natural environment and learn in a different way at your own pace.

If you would like to bring your children here to enjoy the fresh air and countryside as a self-led group then please contact our Learning team for prices. Please note, during term time some of the buildings may be closed due to school workshops so access to the buildings may be limited.

If you would prefer something more formal but outdoor, then we invite you to browse through possible activities from our award winning schools programme.
