Somerset Rural Life Museum

The Somerset Rural Life Museum is located in Glastonbury. Visitors to the Abbey Farmhouse can see reconstructed rooms showing the social and domestic life of Victorian Somerset. The Somerset Rural Life Museum also features a tea room and museum shop. 

The centrepiece of the Museum is the fourteenth-century Abbey Barn. The barn and the surrounding farm buildings as well as the courtyard contain displays which showcase local rural activities such as mud horse fishing, peat digging and cider making.
