Avoncroft Museum's historic agricultural buildings - Threshing barn, Granary and farm stable, in bright sunshine


Owing to the ongoing Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic and our absolute desire to keep the public, our staff and our volunteers safe, we have sadly had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Avoncroft Museum to visitors from today, Friday 20th March 2020 until at least Thursday 30th April 2020.

Our top priority has, and always will be, the safety of those who visit, work and volunteer at the Museum. We had already cancelled our Easter events, but now that we will be closed to the end of April, sadly our Medieval St George’s Day event will also no longer take place.

We will use this period to introduce and develop new events and even more reasons for you to visit Avoncroft once we re-open. Please keep an eye on our social media for more information about these once available.

As an independent museum and charity this has not been an easy decision and everyone at the Museum thanks you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times. It means a lot to us.

We will be keeping in touch with you through our social media pages and here on our website and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum later in 2020.

Deputy Director (Acting), Avoncroft Museum
