Avoncroft Museum of Historic buildings is an award-winning museum spanning 700 years of Midlands' heritage set in a stunning rural location over 19 acres. Our collection includes a windmill, a Tudor town house and a fully furnished prefab. The museum was England's first ever open-air museum and is no home to 30 exhibits of architectural and historic significance that have been rescued from destruction or demolition and rebuilt at Avoncroft. The site is also home to the National Telephone Kiosk Collection, a traditional cider and perry orchard and wildflower meadow. There is ample free parking, a children's play area and an award-winning Edwardian Tea Roo. Situated in Bromsgrove between Birmingham and Worcester, Avoncroft is easily accessible from the M5, M40 and M42. For cyclists it is just a short ride from National Cycle Routes 5 and 46.
