Just a short walk from the museum is our working farm. The walk takes about ten minutes, with paths overlooking fields and hedgerows. Please follow the signposted one way route to and from the farm . The Farm Explorer tractor-trailer ride to the farm and farmhouse is temporarily unavailable.
Meet the animals
Our working farm is home to Ayrshire, Aberdeen Angus and Highland cattle, Tamworth pigs, sheep, hens and Clydesdale horses. With each season there is something new to see, from newborn animals to harvesting. Please wash your hands often when visiting the farm and use the hand sanitiser provided. Please do not pet or feed the animals, including our farm cats.
After nearly five months of closure, we’re almost ready to welcome visitors back to our museums. We've made some changes to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit, including online booking and new safety measures.
