Made very welcome by the lady receptionist who was very knowledgeable about her town The Grants and the area. Took the Tour and the video which last about 15 minutes and gives you a great insight to the town and how it came about then on through the museum most interesting worth a visit

The 'story' of Grantown was interesting. When we asked about the origin of one of the exhibits on the wall the attendant did not know.

Nice little local museum with very knowledgable staff. You watch a presentation before looking round the few display cases. There is a small museum shop.

Sometimes the weather in Scotland can be a little inclement! The museum whilst not vey large but it certainly packs a lot into a small space. Well worth a is it come rain or shine.

Tells the history of the town (200 years)but could offer more especially the local wildlife and the fishing & stag hunting.

We were in today. We were actually at the museum last year but had limited time so we went back today as there is so much to see in this museum. Good displays on the origins of Grantown and temporary exhibition on the railways with lots of models and photos. Also very interesting video.

A good place to stop on a rainy day if you want to kill some time,it is based at the top of town next to a big car park,also it is just two minutes from the town centre if you would like a bit of lunch as well
