Chiltern Open Air Museum COVID-19 UPDATE

Coronavirus (Covid-19) is affecting all of us and we want to keep all staff, volunteers and visitors safe. It is with this in mind that we have decided to keep the Museum closed until further notice.

Don’t worry all our animals are still being fed and cared for and we hope to be able to show you pictures of any new lambs as they arrive.

We will be updating our website and social media channels with any further updates or changes.

This is a very worrying time for the Museum because we are a self-funded individual charity. If you would like to support us during this challenging period and help us protect the Museum and the conservation work that has been carried out over the last 40 years then please consider making a donation or buying an Annual Pass.

We thank you for your support. Stay safe everyone.

School Visits

Due to the enforced school closures from 20th March 2020, we will now hold any school bookings (confirmed or provisional) until further notice.

All visits from 20th March 2020 will not incur any cancellation costs to schools until the situation becomes clearer.

As soon as is possible, we will endeavour to rebook your school trip at a later date.

In the meantime, please do bear with us while we work through this in these extraordinary circumstances. During this closure period, the best way to contact us is via email

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this challenging time. We hope to get back to normal as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing your school at COAM in the near future.

Wishing you, your children, staff and their families all the very best.
