An interesting museum that is part of the tourist information centre. My only issue was that when I came to buying some gifts they do not have the facility to take cards so we had to go and get cash from the bank.

The museum is also home to the tourist information centre so worth dropping in, seeing the story of the town and then have a look at information about walks etc Friendly and knowledgeable lady was helpful though she was busy and answered my many questions. I am a geek as far as Scottish info goes and enjoyed very much

Well set out small museum situated just off the main street, explains the origins of Grantown. Good video introduction lasting about 10 mins. Changing exhibits in final room, such as displays by local artists.

We have been in Grantown many times but only dropped in to the museum because it was pouring. There's not an awful lot to it - so don't expect gimmicks - but if you are genuinely interested in the area and it's history, you could do worse.
