Leaving A Gift in Your Will


Chiltern Open Air Museum is a registered charity, which costs around £1000 a day to keep open.  Since 1976, it has rescued and rebuilt over 33 historic Chilterns buildings, with 14 in storage awaiting the funds for their reconstruction.  Providing lifelong learning opportunities and inspiring thousands of visitors and school children each year, the Museum is an important heritage asset now and in the future.  You can help create lasting memories by leaving a gift, small or large, in your Will and every gift helps keeps memories alive.

There are exciting development projects underway including our medieval buildings in store and major gifts can help us build and preserve these new exhibits for the enjoyment of future generations.

It’s easy to leave a gift in your will to Chiltern Open Air Museum.  Speak to your solicitor, or give them a copy of this form.
