Good outdoor play area and lots of old farm machinery. The different exhibits needed some reading and an adult to encourage interest but there was lots of interactive parts like jigsaws etc. Good way to spend a couple of hours. Dog-friendly too!

Abbey and museum well worth a visit. Spent 2 1/2 hours there including lunch. We found it very interesting. The weather was kind which makes a difference.1940s cottage very good and the shop recreation was also good. Lunch was lovely and freshly made. Overall very interesting.

Having been involved in the tool trade for most of my working life I found this exhibition very interesting with certain pieces of machinery giving me problems in identifying what their purpose was. A good insight and education on how the farmers of Cambridgeshire made their hard earned livings Although connected to an English heritage attraction it was not included... More

A great place to take children, especially on school trips, as it is full of information on Cambridgeshire farming with lots of exhibits, craftsmen’s workshops and machines as well as places to run about and play. I particularly liked Wallnut Tree cottage set up to show how the farmer and his family used to live. (Children will no doubt delight... More

Found this by accident. It's part of English Heritage. The farm museum is very well laid out and interesting. The abbey is accessible. There was no café and the toilets had no water the day we went so I cannot rate it higher. Reasonable price entry fee.

We visited because we were visiting the adjacent Denny Abbey and for a little extra we could visit this also. It had some displays and some "old" farm equipment (essentially stuff I used to see when visiting country relatives 70 years ago when I lived in England). We did not find it very interesting, but I could see that it... More

Denny Abbey and the Farmland Museum opens from noon till 5.00 p.m. during the summer. Please note the café is only open at the weekends and Bank Holidays, so, on weekdays, have lunch elsewhere before you come. The shop sells coffee, ice cream and sweets. It is on the no. 9 bus route that runs broadly hourly between Ely, Market... More

This was an enjoyable couple of hours looking round various exhibits from farms in past times to a home in the 40's/50's. The shop was interesting and there were lots of things for children to do. The cafe was good and the staff welcoming. Very good for children.

A lovely venue, very well laid out easy to access. It is also dog friendly. The staff were welcoming and friendly. For a person brought up in the 50s there were so many exhibits that took me back to my childhood.
