Many of the exhibits have been handed to the Museum by local people. It is touching to see old favourites on display, especially those in the glass case. The "doll drawers" are a must see. In these pull-out drawers, a variety of dolls are on display, some dating back a considerable time. There is a dressing-up area for children too,... More

We stopped here on the way back to Inverness after a trip to Ullapool. It's only small, but offers a fascinating look at Highland life. Beautiful black and white photos, interesting displays and exhibits about - among other things - education, nutrition, toys, child labour. It's definitely worth popping in if you are passing. A family ticket is only £6.... More

I was driving around the Highlands and saw the sign for this museum. Lovely! Small and intimate but just packed with history and childhood memories. Gave me a great sense of the types of small schools and what teaching must have been like long before we were all globally connected. Great food at the cafe next door and a good... More

The museum is located on the platform of an old disused railway station and, although it is on the main road it is a little tucked away... More

A member of staff was extremely rude to us. To the point we turned around and walked out. On the other hand we were made very welcome in the fair trade shop next door, and enjoyed a lovely meal served by friendly staff in the cafe. There is good baby changing and plenty of space for children to run around... More
