Christmas at the Museum

Enjoy the History of Christmas Past

A festive historic treat awaits visitors to the Museum for two days over Christmas! On Boxing Day and Wednesday 27 December our collection of rescued rural homes will be traditionally decorated to depict Christmas through the ages.

Period music, historical demonstrations, seasonal food and drink, plus log fires will bring history to life, so that our visitors can discover how their rural ancestors celebrated from Tudor to Victorian times. Each home is decorated with traditional greenery, with a table laid with a Christmas meal typical of the period.

Christmas is a great time to bring friends and family to the Museum’s idyllic location – it is the perfect opportunity to walk off the Christmas pudding. The Museum is open for Christmas at the Museum from 10.30am – 4.00pm on Boxing Day and Wednesday 27 December. The Museum will be closed on 24 and 25 December and from 28-31 December.
