Pay once, visit all year with the amazing Annual Pass.
National Museum of Rural Life tickets are valid for unlimited visits for 12 months from the date of purchase. Just present your ticket, along with valid ID, to come back as many times as you like for free (some events attract a small supplement). Terms and conditions apply, see below.
With each season comes something new, from newborn lambs and calves to harvesting and haymaking – so there are plenty of reasons to come back again and again. When you buy your Annual Pass, sign up to receive our regular enewsletters to stay up to date with all the latest news and special offers.
The National Museum of Rural Life is now open!
Please note that all visitors, including Annual Pass holders, must book a timed entry ticket online in advance of their visit. This will ensure that we can manage numbers and maintain physical distancing.
Please select the 'Annual Pass holder' ticket option on the booking page. Once you have booked, you will be sent an email confirmation and order number to bring with you when you visit. Please bring your Annual Pass with you. Without this, you will not be able to access the site and will be asked to pay the normal admission price and this will not be refunded.
If you purchased an Annual Pass before 17 March 2020, we have extended your Pass for five months to cover the period of closure for COVID-19.
Child (5–15) £6 (under 5s free)
Family (2 adults and 2 children) £25
*Concessions: 60+, students with valid NUS or Young Scot card, unemployed with ID, disabled people.
Carers of disabled people free.
Did you know that National Museums Scotland is a charity? If you are a UK taxpayer you’ll be helping to support the museum even more, as we can claim Gift Aid on your admission. This is worth 25% of the total cost of your Annual Pass, at no additional cost to you.
