About National Museum of Rural Life

Escape to the countryside for a great day out at the National Museum of Rural Life. Located just 13 miles from Glasgow’s city centre, this five-star attraction is home to a museum, historic farmhouse and 1950s working farm.

Meet Aberdeen Angus cattle, Tamworth pigs, Ayrshire cows, black-faced sheep and a Clydesdale horse on the farm, then tour the Georgian farmhouse for a sense of what life on a farm was really like more than 50 years ago. In the purpose-built museum, discover how 300 years of farming and rural home life have shaped and altered Scotland’s countryside. Each season brings something new to see, from newborn lambs and calves to harvesting and haymaking.
