Primary

Discover what your class can explore and learn at the Museum of Country Life


Butter-Making

School visits are free!

Journey back in time and marvel at the innovation and endurance of our rural ancestors; discover a man trap, ghost turnips, boys in skirts, harpoons and faeries... Spark the imagination of children of all ages in an ‘out of classroom’ experience with a difference.

Turlough Park is overlooked by an ancient Round Tower and has a magic all of its own!  Take a walk around the lake, learn about life 100 years ago, weave a harvest knot or discover science in everyday life!
