About Avoncroft Museum of Buildings

Avoncroft is a fascinating museum of historic buildings spanning seven centuries, rescued from imminent destruction and carefully rebuilt timber by timber or brick by brick on a beautiful open-air site in the north of Worcestershire.

At Avoncroft you can walk into buildings from many different periods: Tudor buildings include the magnificent 16th century Merchant’s House from Bromsgrove and the former String of Horses Inn from Shrewsbury; fine 19th century buildings include the Toll Keeper’s House from Little Malvern, a ‘tin chapel’ from Herefordshire and a Victorian cell block; 20th century exhibits include the extravagant Edwardian living wagon made for a travelling showman and a 1940's Prefab showing how people lived after being re-housed following the Second World War.

Their fascinating traditional farm buildings include a 19th century windmill, a crushing mill for making Worcestershire cider and perry and a beautiful 16th century cruck barn, from Cholstrey in Warwickshire.
