Discover the story of Somerset’s rich rural and social history in the beautiful town of Glastonbury.

Here you can explore rural life from the 1800s onwards and discover more about the county’s heritage including its landscapes, food and farming, working life and rural crafts. The Museum is on the site of what was formerly Abbey Farm, and the farmhouse and former farm buildings are now home to a series of galleries and exhibition spaces. The magnificent 14th-century Abbey Barn is one of the West Country’s finest buildings and the centrepiece of the site.
