Orienteering at the Chiltern Open Air Museum

Any date apart from weekends during Museum opening times

The course is available for schools, uniformed groups and general Museum visitors. We also offer training sessions to support the use of our orienteering courses. These must be pre-booked. You can choose from three routes of varying difficulty: 1k, 1.5k or 2k courses. All of the markers are located on the Museum’s grounds, so once you have completed the course you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the Museum. See here
