Spent a full day here with two young grandchildren (7 and 3) and we all enjoyed the day very much. We visited on a Wednesday during school holidays and there were lots of craft and other activities going on around the site in addition to the "usual" attractions of the museum. From a ride on an old industrial railway to... More

I took my three children ages 5, 10 and 11, plus my parents for what we thought would be a couple of hours. Five hours later I had to drag them all away! The Activity Thursdays in the holidays are just brilliant! Loads of activities and overall great value.

A wonderful museum full of intrigue and information about ways of living and learning in the past. Unique machinery and artefacts in dedicated areas around the museum grounds, which are vast. Dedicated themed days plus a music festival in September. A cafe with a range of food from full meals to tea and cake. No overpricing and service with friendly... More

Lovely small site with lots of quirky exhibits including their very own miniature railway. The centre host lots of events throughout the year including the fabulous Weyfest music festival. ️Dog friendly and with great little cafe on site.

Took my daughter and two grandchild to the Rural Life Centre on Thursday 23rd July. Entry price for two adults and two children was not too steep. We had a thoroughly enjoyable first visit there and the children were entertained the whole day. The fact that you can touch and use many of the displays was great as so many... More

My friend and I decided to go to the Rural Life Centre after reading good reviews and I was quite disappointed with the visit. The place is set in a small area of woodland and was very promising when we first arrived. The first thing you see is the old prefab built after the war. After this I am afraid... More

An ideal place to take young children to show what life used to be like, especially during the war years. Great when they have special events on, last August they had activity Thursdays. My grandchildren had a wonderful day washing as great grandma used to with soap, scrubbing board and mangle etc. They milked a cow, tiled a roof, built... More

My wife and I visit on a dreary afternoon, and were amazed at the size of this place, and the fact that we had never heard of this before. The exhibits are well laid out, in a semi woodland setting, and you are free to enter the buildings, get a real hands on experience with a lot of items. We... More

A very pleasurable day... We got there around 11am, reasonable price of £9.00 each. Staff were very friendly, got chatting to one of them, she had a lot of enthusiasm for the place, and was very informative of upcoming events. Loved the different lay outs, the displays had a great feel to them. There was a 1940's profab, which was... More

Visited today 2nd May wih our 3 sons aged 14, 10 and 2. We were the only ones there for most of the afternoon. Had a great afternoon looking around the exhibits. You can actually get really hands on, its not all roped off so there are lots of chances to touch and play with everything. We all sat in... More
