Explore life in the countryside at this five-star museum, historic farmhouse and working farm. 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.
Just a short walk or tractor-trailer ride from the museum is the working farm, home to cows, pigs, sheep, hens and Clydesdale horses. Meet the animals, then visit the Georgian farmhouse where Lanarkshire’s Reid family lived for ten generations. See rooms decorated as they would have been in the 1950s and explore the bothy, outbuildings and kitchen garden.
Don’t forget to round off your visit with a stop at the museum café, or bring a picnic to enjoy in the outdoor picnic area and play park.
