The Rural Life Living Museum tells the story of the countryside, its unique collection of re-located historic buildings allow visitors to explore inside, complemented by one of the largest collections of agricultural implements and objects from everyday life.
We take you on a journey of nostalgia and discovery suitable for all the family.
The museum produces and hosts a range of special events, from the annual Village Fete and Vintage Revival through to Weyfest. Our volunteers demonstrate craft skills, working machinery and bring to life some special characters through live interpretation on various days throughout the year.
The Old Kiln Light Railway regularly operates diesel and steam locomotive passenger rides from February to October. Trains run on the weekends and Wednesdays during this period. Rides are free with your museum tickets on our Railway Wednesdays.
We are an open-air museum, set in over 10 acres of open space and woodland with an arboretum containing over 100 trees. There are places to shelter when it rains, a picnic area for lunch, and secluded benches to take a break. The Market Garden Café serves a variety of hot and cold food and there is always tea and cake to finish off a great day out!
