Donate to our charity

Thank you for your interest in supporting Chiltern Open Air Museum.

Your donation today can help the Museum to thrive in the future

  • We are a registered charity (no.272381)
  • As an independent museum receiving no regular local or national financial support, we have to raise all our own income and pay our own bills, maintain our buildings and stay open
  • We currently have 14 rescued historical buildings in store for which we need to raise the funds to reconstruct at the Museum
  • The Museum was founded by volunteers, and still relies on 200 volunteers giving over 27,000 hours a year
  • We have running costs of over £1000 each day.

A regular gift would be a special help to us

If you can help, please make a one-off or regular donation online.  Alternatively, you can contact Gill on for information on other ways to donate.

What your gift could do for us :

  • £10 could buy feed for our animals for a day
  • £50 could buy compost for our beautiful traditional gardens
  • £100 could buy new toys and games for visitors to enjoy
  • £500 could purchase a traditional Bucks gate
  • £1000 could buy essential batteries for our electric scooters used by visitors with disabilities

Thank you so much
