Attraction Information

The national Museum of Rural life invites you to roll up your sleeves and get hands on as you explore and discover what life on a working farm has been like over the years.

You’ll learn all about the machinery involved including tractors and combine harvesters, great for any mini motor heads. Meet Tamworth pigs, fluffy sheep and clucking chickens. See if you can spot the Airgead II and Ceo V, the resident highland calves. Go for a tour around the period farmhouse, or visit the 1950’s byre and get to grips with milking.

Keen gardeners will love exploring the Garden Detectives display. This is a sensory experience that allows you to get at one with nature without having to go outside. Feel like a detective as you snoop around the lifelike garden, whilst taking in garden like smells and whistling sounds of nature.

  • Combine harvesters
  • Interactive displays
  • Animals to swoon over
