I really wish that this place was open when I went but as it was a Sunday all we managed to get was some cracking photographs of these amazing black houses and the super view. I will be going back when it is open. Really super place, Just down from Kilmuir cemetery. Would recommend

This little museum village is packed with history about the Islanders in days gone by! Well worth a visit!

Its a croft with things that people used decades ago around it. We liked it a lot. It is not a sophisticated museum, but its fun.

A two room crofters house set up how it would be in its day. You can feel the history. £1.50 for adults and free for kids. Even has a honesty box when not manned. Worth a look around.

I visited this little quirky museum after having seen the Museum of Island Life and I have to say that I preferred this one. You don't get to see as many buildings or as many artifacts, or read as many informative postings. What you do get, however, is perhaps a bit truer feel for what it might have been like... More

Very interesting to see inside a crofthouse, and imagine the family's lifestyle. Lots of artefacts and memorabilia to see. You can also see the smiddy and byre with ancient tools and equipment. Very enjoyable!

We popped in here after lunch at the Three Chimneys (it's very close). This is just a wee museum, but so atmospheric. The smell of peat and earth when you enter took me right back to the village where my grandmother lived when I was a child. The mix of objects, such as letters from the clan chief Flora MacLeod...

Very close to restaurant...a trip back in time in the life of hardy highlanders. Would recommend this for tourists in the area...only £1.50 entrance fee
