There's so much to see and do at the National Museum of Rural Life. Spend a day in the countryside, uncover Scotland's unique rural history and meet the animals on the farm!
The nine million pound project comprises a museum and visitor centre, the Georgian farm buildings of Wester Kittochside, the species-rich fields around it and a large events area.
In The Museum
Learn about the land, people and ways of working that have shaped Scotland’s rural history, and discover Scotland’s largest collection of tractors, combine harvesters and other farming machinery.
Explore The Countryside
Just a short walk or ride from the museum is our working farm. The walk takes about ten minutes, with paths overlooking fields and hedgerows. Our Farm Explorer tractor-trailer runs regularly from the museum.
Meet The Animals
Our working farm is home to Ayrshire, Aberdeen Angus and Highland cattle, Tamworth pigs, sheep, hens and Clydesdale horses. With each season there is something new to see, from new born lambs to fresh harvesting.
Visit The Farmhouse
Visit the Georgian farmhouse where Lanarkshire’s Reid family lived for ten generations. See rooms as they would have been in the 1950s and explore the bothy, outbuildings and kitchen garden.
