WEALD & DOWNLAND OPEN AIR MUSEUM

WEALD & DOWNLAND OPEN AIR MUSEUM
WEALD & DOWNLAND OPEN AIR MUSEUM

"Rescued, relocated and restored" - is A Bit About Britain's description of this fascinating open air museum situated in 40 acres on the Sussex downs. The museum saves buildings that stand in the way of development, dismantles them and meticulously reassembles them on this site. There are about 50 buildings to see at the last count, many stripped back to their original state, furnished as they once would have been and in surroundings that reflect their age. Knowledgeable costumed staff demonstrate traditional trades and skills. Take a picnic.
