What’s On

Fantastic special events and activities throughout the year


What’s on at COAM

The Museum’s aim is to tell the historic stories of people from the Chilterns, how they lived, dressed and went about their everyday lives. We tell these stories via our exhibit buildings, interpretation, experience days and the special living history events that we hold. We tell the stories of the Chilterns in a way that is educational and fun for everyone. We aim to hold an exciting special event or activity on most weekends during the season, and every Tuesday during Buckinghamshire school holidays is a Terrific Tuesday; where our Education Team puts on themed activities and crafts.  There are plenty of historic battles including Medieval Knights, Roman Gladiators, Tudor Times and the fearsome Highwaymen!

COAM also hold night-time openings: The Enchanted Museum in May and the incredible Halloween Spectacular in October both are unforgettable nights out for the whole family!

You can also enjoy a range of traditional events including Heavy Horse displays, the Classic Vehicle Show and Traditional Harvest event.

Our award winning schools programme welcomes over 18,000 school visitors each year for workshops in prehistory, literacy, science and history. We also run special event days for home educators and uniformed groups.
