Your farming adventure starts here...
Our museum galleries are the first stop on your rural adventure. Here you'll discover how the land, people and new ways of working have shaped Scotland's rural history. Then head up to the working farm to see history in action.
Did you know that the museum hosts Scotland's largest collection of tractors, combine harvesters and other farming machinery? Find out more about the collection, and see them for yourself in the Tractor Store.
…for a walk to the farm! This ten-minute country stroll takes you along a path overlooking the fields and hedgerows.
Don't fancy a walk? You can always ride to the farm in true country style in the Farm Explorer tractor-trailer.
When you step into our Georgian farmhouse, you'll step back in time. Lanarkshire's Reid family lived there for ten generations, and the house is decorated as it would have been in the 1950s.
Meet cattle, pigs, sheep and hens on our working farm – and look out for Sooty, the farm cat, patrolling the farmyard or asleep in the sun.
Discover how the experts milk the Ayrshire cows in our herd. Watch a milking demonstration and find out more about this Scottish breed of cow.
Did you know that before tractors were invented, horses used to pull ploughs and carry heavy loads on the farm? Meet our Clydesdales Mhairi and Anna up at the farm or in the fields.
Don’t forget to round off your visit with a stop at our award-winning café, the perfect place for some good old-fashioned home baking.
Life on the farm changes constantly and the countryside looks very different in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Come back for one of our seasonal events to see the museum in a new light.
