Somerset Rural Life Museum

Visitors to Somerset Rural Life Museum can explore rural life from the 1800s onwards and discover more about the county’s heritage. The museum tells the story of Somerset’s rich rural and social history.

In the large Farmyard Gallery the major themes are ‘Working Village’ and ‘Working the Land’.
The magnificent 14th-century Abbey Barn remains the centrepiece of the site, providing a unique and remarkable setting for exhibitions and events.

Outside spaces, including the Farmyard and the Orchard, contain sculpture and family trails that interpret the history of the site and its buildings. The Grain Store Café is open all year round at this family-friendly destination, offering high-quality locally-sourced food and drink.

A programme of seasonal events take place throughout the year.
For up to date opening hours please see website: srlm.org.uk
