History is brought to life by costumed staff and volunteers. Visitors to the 350 acre open air museum site explore a town, village and buildings from the 1820s and early 20th century. Many of the buildings have been moved from across the region and the museum’s collections focus on rural life, social history, transport and engineering/industry.
