Weald & Downland Museum near Chichester is an open-air museum set over 50 acres with 50 buildings demonstrating the lives of those who lived here over a 600 year period.
Explore our 50-acre site and visit our collection – we have more than 50 historic buildings, from a replica Anglo-Saxon hall house to an Edwardian tin church. Enjoy a regular programme of demonstrations, including milling in our 17th-century watermill; cooking in our Tudor kitchen; blacksmithing in our Victorian smithy; plus seasonal demonstrations.
Take a walk in the woods, bring the dog (we are dog-friendly), visit our waterside cafe or enjoy your own picnic. We currently have three new exhibit buildings under construction: a dairy and bakehouse, near the watermill, plus a late 18th-century barn and early 19th-century stable known as May Day Farm.
