Pendon Musem

Model Museum in Oxfordshire near Abingdon

Pendon indoor model village and railways aims to recapture colourful miniature scenes showing the beautiful English countryside.

We are an independent, accredited museum run almost entirely by volunteers and funded by visitors and our loyal Friends. We aim to provide an enjoyable and informative experience.

They have workshops for adult modellers covering a range of topics.

Their railway layouts include:

Dartmoor Scene
Part of an imaginary Great Western branch line meandering from South Devon into Cornwall.

The Vale Scene
An ambitious model of the countryside of the Vale of White Horse as it was in the 1930s. It captures in miniature an impression of the calm unhurried beauty of the past.

Madder Valley Railway
A famous, pioneering layout on permanent display. It runs on specific days during the year.

Pendon recaptures scenes from the English countryside as it was in the 1920s and 1930s using exquisite models to explain a past era and a different way of life.
