Almond Valley Heritage Centre - Livingston

An award winning museum, farm and discovery centre where all the family can spend the day together exploring and having fun.

The 18th century mill and farm buildings are home to a range of friendly farm animals that children can get nose to nose with. Life on the farm changes with the season so there are always different things to do and see throughout the year, in the spring there are lambs and chicks to meet and at various times milking demonstrations are also available. There is plenty of space to play safely indoors and out. Under 5's can enjoy a play tractor course and indoor soft play are, while over 5's can let off some steam in the adventure zone.

Train and tractor drawn trailer rides are available at the weekends and most days during July and August. Most weekends and school holidays there are crafts, experiments and activities in the discovery centre. Inside in the museum there are levers to pull and tunnels to explore while discovering the secrets of West Lothian's past.

There is also a programme of special events throughout the year such as Easter Eggcitement, Astounding Discoveries during the summer, Spooky Happenings for Halloween and Santa's Winter Wonderland especially for Christmas. Allow at least three hours to properly enjoy all that Almond Valley has to offer. Other facilities: gift shop, picnic tables, tea room with high chairs, nappy changing facilities in ladies toilet and disabled toilets. Children's parties are available and group bookings welcome.
