Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove offers a host of events and activities to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays.

From Monday July 20 until Friday August 28, there will be a different activity to get involved in each weekday.

On Mondays it’s grubby good fun with brick-making and wattle and daub, and on Tuesdays there’s a Forest School and tips on how to survive in the great outdoors. 

Wednesday is the day to join Avoncroft’s expert bug hunter to find hidden creepy crawlies, while each Thursday there are drop-in “have-a-go” archery and falconry sessions.

On Fridays there will be traditional games around the museum’s grounds.

Costumed characters live and work in the buildings and visitors will have the chance to chat to them and help with traditional activities such as cooking and washing.

You can also stroll around Avoncroft’s beautiful 19-acre grounds and explore the rescued buildings and exhibits, which span seven centuries of rural, urban and industrial life in the West Midlands.

Firm favourites include a working 19th-century windmill (see for “sailing days” when you can see the mill in operation), the medieval Town House and the National Telephone Kiosk Collection.

Visitors can bring their own picnics to the Museum or stop off for refreshments in the Tea Room. There is a large, free car park and bicycle racks, and friendly dogs on leads are very welcome in the grounds.
