Fun play area for kids and great café. Museum itself is fun and quirky which only adds to its charm. Would only visit museum exhibits once but return with family to play and eat.

Take a lovely wee stroll round the coast to find this attraction as it's well worth it. Only £4 to enter this charity run museum so it's good value, you can also purchase annual ticket for regular visitors. Was taken back in time to childhood memories of Arran and Scotland with lot's of artifacts and info.

Excellent volunteer stewards here with lots of local information as to how life was lived on the island until comparatively recently. Lots to see and enough to interest children too, especially the schoolroom, the cottage and the farming sections. The museum has an excellent cafe and a shop selling all things Arran

This was our second visit to this museum. There has been a lot of work put into the this museum by the local community and it shows. The school children throughout the island have been encouraged to contribute and to learn of their interesting and varied history. Ever wondered where some of the most popular potatoes originated? You'll find out... More

Small but beautifully formed would describe the museum. Several small rooms/cottages all with interesting artefacts to look through describing island life. Lovely garden and friendly staff in the gift shop. There is a great cafe there with lovely home made food

If you want to see and have a taste of Arran though the ages then it is such a worth while place to visit. With many buildings rebuilt here so that you can see what it was like. The stories and information which were given by the guide were wonderful and entertaining too and so interesting even the kids were... More

Didn't know what to expect but it was a great little museum. Had some great period things set up and a nice little Blacksmith reconstruction. Told you a lot about the Island. Worth a visit
