~~~] Cost.

~~]~~The museum
Pitstone Green Museum is a Victorian farm museum, some original 1830s buildings and a 17 century barn

There is a way into the museum area for vehicles connected with the museum and there is an entry desk in what looks like a small farm building. Opposite this desk is the ladies and gents toilets, some suitable for the disabled too these are serviceable. Baby changing would he possible here.
Once through this area there is are several other attached rooms displaying artefacts from time gone by.

In this area is the open to air style cafe with a few chairs and tables set up outside these over look a "courtyard" area where the morrismen were dancing when I was there in October. The cafe sells tea coffee and other drinks and sells home made cakes, sandwiches etc. The quality and prices were good.
You do not need to purchase food here as there is a picnic area where you can eat your own food too.

Then we go through to another outside area where the timbered barn stands, inside this barn on open days there are craft exhibiters some demonstrating some selling. Exhibiters there in October included knot craft, pottery, jewellery maker's corn dolly's demonstration and sale, wood crafts, wool crafts.
Outside the barn was a basket making demonstration.
Then there is a small row of buildings set up and displaying artefact as they would be in an old shop or workshop. Most of these a farming agricultural theme.
In a small grassed field area there were a few old cars on display and a small model train running
Inside some more barns now there's other exhibits a sawmill, a large Crossley gas engine , a room with vintage wirelesses , I seem to find some of these a bit like the ones my parents had and one my dad had when I was a nipper, there was an old TV looked like the one my grandma had late 50's early 60's There's then the Lancaster bomber cockpit .

These artefacts are well laid out and interesting.

~~~] Visitors
When I was there most visitors were older people and young families not many visitors in late teens and twenties unless they were with the family. I think this farm museum suitable for children and a family visit or for anyone interested in old farming and the Lancaster bomber. I think a visit would /could last between 2 or 3 hours come at 11 /11.30 look round stay or go home for lunch or come for or after lunch. Although some exhibits indoors best visit on a nice weather day.
Dogs are allowed.

Most of the site suitable for wheelchairs with level access or ramps.

It is possible to book guided tours, group visits, schools etc on non open days phone 01582605464 website http://www.pitstonemuseum.co.uk/

~~~] Would I recommend
Yes if this type of place interests you.
