Weald and Downland Open Air Museum

The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum is an open air museum in Singleton, Sussex, England. The museum covers 50 acres (20 ha), with nearly 50 historic buildings dating from the thirteenth to nineteenth centuries, along with gardens, farm animals, walks and a lake.

The buildings at the museum were all threatened with destruction. They were carefully dismantled, conserved and rebuilt to their original form at the museum. These buildings help the museum bring to life the homes, farmsteads and rural industries of the last seven hundred years. Many buildings situated there are over four hundred years old, and still stand strong. Along with the buildings, there are "hands on" activities, like cooking, and weaving and a number of yearly activities, including glass painting, and bonfire nights.
