For rural life collections everywhere and the people who look after them. Share Learn Join in!The Rural Museums Network is a registered charity, aimed at promoting learning and encouraging a wider understanding of the UK’s rural heritage.

As a subject specialist network we provide access to collections development information and current research to support heritage sites working within related fields.

The Network operates a web-based discussion group, which is a great place to exchange information and to look for answers. The collective knowledge and expertise of the network is one of its key strengths, and there aren’t many questions that go unanswered, or mystery objects that remain unidentified!
