An open-air museum which allows families to understand the history surrounding the Cambridgeshire Fens will reopen this week.
The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey in Waterbeach near Ely will reopen its outdoor spaces on Thursday, April 15, with a view to reopening the entire museum at the end of May.
This is in line with the government’s roadmap for reopening museums.
While outdoors, visitors will be able to view farming machinery and Fenland craft displays as well as looking around Denny Abbey.
The museum and café will also be open Thursday to Sunday.
A spokesperson for Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey said: “Children can access the play area, run around the open space and take a look at the wildlife in the pond.
“There’s also a cafe on site for takeaway food and drinks with many outside seating areas.”
