There is lots to do and see over Spring bank holiday and half term (Monday 25th – Thursday 28th May 2015) at Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove, with four days of fairytale-themed fun.

Bring the whole family to the award-winning museum to see historic buildings transformed into fairytale scenes as well-loved (and some less well-loved) characters from traditional stories go about their daily chores and chat to visitors.

Younger visitors can hone their dragon slaying skills and meet some real life scary creatures. There will be drop in craft activities, storytelling sessions and a prize trail to solve in the Museum grounds.

Avoncroft’s popular miniature train will be running (11am – 3pm, Monday – Thursday) and our windmill will be open each day.  On Monday 25th May, our team of specially trained volunteers will be demonstrating milling in the windmill, weather permitting.

On Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June, the ever-popular American Civil War Society will return to Avoncroft Museum to recreate live as it would have been in the 1860s.  Visitors – especially younger ones – are encouraged to join in drills and there will be re-enactments of skirmishes throughout both days.  Visit the living history encampments and chat to the re-enactors as they go about their daily lives and prepare for battle.

Avoncroft Museum, based in Stoke Heath in Bromsgrove, is an award-winning Museum that has been rescuing historic buildings for over 50 years.  Stroll around the beautiful 19 acre site, visit the National Telephone Kiosk Collection and take part in our lively programme of events.  You are welcome to bring a picnic, or simply sit back and relax in Avoncroft’s award-winning Tea Room.
