It was a wet day when we visited but they had a special tractor show on outside which my daughter found interesting - until one precious tractor owner's wife told her off for playing with the pedals and levers etc! The museum itself is quite small but has some interesting exhibits and there was a craftsman working in the forge... More

Learned a lot about Arran in this little museum where displays are split under various headings: Arran at War; Farming etc. Informative Geology display for those who have a passing interest or some pre-existing knowledge, with great kids' leaflet to go off investigating. Smithy was fascinating, and the old school house and cottage were interesting too. I could have spent... More

Arran Heritage Museum is a great historic attraction for any visitor or resident alike, reasonable price to enter and there is no time limit, even has a small café to sit and have something to eat and drink, plenty to look at in the museum

To be fair, this is worth a visit at any time but is perfect reserved for the rainy days one is bound to get in Arran. It was well laid out and interesting for us, but did not keep our sons' (ages 7 and 10) attention for long. They enjoyed the shop much more!

From the outside the Museum doesn't look much. I honestly thought we'd be able to look round it in 10 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised to say it took much longer than this and we could have spent even more time here reading everything that was available and also watching the videos/DVD's. Excellent value for money at only £3 for... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this visit and it was good value for money. It only cost £3 pounds entrance or 50p if you just wanted to come into the grounds. Because it was a Thursday there were spinning and weaving workshops we could participate in which was good fun. The exhibits were interesting and informative. The grounds were lovely and there...

While we were tracing family history (go on a Wednesday to do this), the children were kept busy and informed trying to answer all the questions on the well thought out quiz. being 10 and 11 they were able to do this on their own. We got there a little late and you really need at least an hour. It... More

This was an excellent museum and will take a few hours if you are to do it justice. It covers the island geology, heritage, lifestyle, history, etc and has plenty of things to amuse kids. The enthuiastic staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and hepful. We took 2 1/2 Hrs and even then we skimmed areas that we weren't overly interested... More

Worth a visit, quite interesting rooms and exhibits and a nice tea room but quite small and one could be round it in about 30 minutes if not enjoying the tea room.
