A unique partnership between the National Trust for Scotland and National Museums Scotland, the museum combines an exhibition building (with shop and cafe) and the historic working farm of Wester Kittochside.
Just eight miles from the centre of Glasgow yet far removed from city life, a day out at the National Museum of Rural Life gives you a unique opportunity to get back to the land and experience the traditional way of life on a Scottish farm.
Discover how 300 years of farming and rural home life have shaped and altered Scotland’s countryside. The farm itself is still worked using techniques and equipment from the 1950s.
There's a historic farmhouse which was occupied by the Reid family since the 1500s. The farm is managed to represent the 1950s, when the horse was giving way to the tractor.
There are animals (see the cows being milked!), crops, tractor rides, special events, farmland walks, spectacular views and much more. It’s a great day out for the whole family.
Please note: Admission charges will apply on some event days.
