We made a last minute decision to make the short detour off the A9 on our journey south from Inverness to visit this museum. We were pleased we did. We were fortunate to have good weather, & I think this is important in getting the best experience from the site as it is predominantly outdoors. There are buildings spanning 3... 更多
A great day for couples or families alike. We were expecting a building with artefacts, but this is a living museum. Schoolhouse, sweetie shop and Clockmakers workshop, to name a few buildings to enter and see how life used to be. There is no fee to get into the Museum, just a donation, and all the information supplied is to... 更多
On a gorgeous April afternoon we made a short detour to take a look. We were so glad we did. Firstly, it was free, but make sure you make a donation before you leave. For me the highlight was the 18th century hamlet which was a film location for Outlander TV series soon to hit UK television. The lady interpreter... 更多
We spent a long time in the outdoor museum. We had fun in the school, bought sweeties from the sweetie shop next door to the post office, chatted with a worker in the old farm area and spent a lot of time in the 18th century township. This is a fascinating place to visit with so much to learn; and... 更多
We went here for a few hours on our drive home and absolutely loved it! There was so much to do, wandering around the areas and has fantastic play park facilities for kids! - something for all ages The best part for me was the interactive areas, especially the school where the teacher was both funny and informative. Also visiting... 更多
WOW, we really liked our visit to the Highland Folk Musuem. We arrived for the opening and 2 hours later we were only 50 metres from the entrance. The children played in the play area for the first 30 mins, all 5 of the them (not all mine!) had a ball on the huge swing, our husbands took turns to... 更多
An absolutely fantastic family day out. You could easily spend hours here wandering around the exhibits, there's so much to see. And it's free. An absolute gem.
this outdoor museum is perfect on a nice,sunny day, which we had, and it's also free although donations are welcome. it brought back a lot of memories,especially the school and the 'teacher' played his part extremely well. when he brought out the belt/tawse i felt a shiver run down my spine at the thought of being on the receiving end... 更多
Fantastic insight into the past. Lovely food. Unbelievably it's free! Stout footwear required if weather is wet. Allow at least 2 hours.
The museum is outdoors, with cottages spaced significantly apart with the exhibits to see inside them. There is an old house, a shop, and exhibits like that. The best one would be the old school house, and the man working there as a "school teacher" does seem quite passionate about his job and seems to have a knack at entertaining... 更多
Had a great afternoon at the Highland Folk Museum. Despite it title this is not a museum building it is an open air museum and took over 3 hours to cover the whole area. There are various buildings scattered over the site including sweetie shop, church, school house, farm steading all depicting different era's. There is also a collection of... 更多
This lovely place can best be described as an open air museum. There are lots of different styles of houses, taking you through the different types of places people in the Highlands would have called home over the years. We met some lovely gentlemen that volunteered at the museum, who were very happy to talk us through some of the... 更多
