A very popular place to visit for all my family members! Rustic Sunday at the end of July each year is a must, as is the Santa visit for the grandchildren. Lots to see even when there is no special event. Lovely, well-priced tea-room too. There is always a friendly, family feel from all the voluntary staff. Well worth a... More

We took our 3 grandchildren to this place for a day out. The weather was warm and sunny, so added to the experience. The site is quite large with plenty of free parking (always essential these days). The exhibits are generally in buildings scattered around the site and concentrate on one aspect of rural life from bygone times. The children... More

This place really captured the young children in our party, the older ones did become bored after about an hour. Will return on a Sunday to experience the railway with the younger ones.

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
