At Chiltern Open Air Museum, historic buildings which would have otherwise been destroyed have been rescued and re-erected in a beautiful countryside setting. The buildings reflect the traditional building heritage of the Chiltern's region and illustrate the lives and work of local people. Several buildings incorporate displays illustrating their original use or house exhibitions on Chiltern life and landscape. The museum occupies 45 acres of parkland and woodland with an attractive nature trail. Regular special event weekends are held throughout the year.
