General information

Get up close to farmyard favourites and meet the stars of the sheep world in the entertaining ‘Sheep Show’. The museum's 1950's working farm will come to life with a variety of country skills and traditional crafts, including milking, farriery demonstrations, sheepdog trials and stock judging.

Celebrate local Scottish produce in the new food and drink marquee and enjoy tastings and talks in the museum to celebrate Scotland's Year of Food and Drink 2015.

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.
