This is a smashing wee museum just on the edge of Brodick on the road north. It is full of interesting exhibits about the history and geology of Arran. Much of it is taken from chronicles and stories contributed by locals both old and young. It is almost all on the level so I would say it was relatively wheelchair... More

The staff here are to be commended for the effort they put into making the place attractive and welcoming. There's a competition for the kids involving looking for various exhibits - I think everybody gets a prize if they make an effort at all. If you wonder what it was like to live on Arran in times gone by -... More

We stopped off here during our short visit to Arran on Sat 2nd July, was a rainy day and we needed something to do, this little place was fantastic. We went to the tearoom to start with and was delighted to see they did nutella sandwiches for kids - went down a treat with my three. My husband and I... More

Guide book not worth buying. I know it is trying to show the "old days" but a lot needs just cleaned up.

The museum was very interesting and kept my 9 year old occupied. The tea room was a bit disappointing with the lack of choice and coffee was not enjoyable.

A selection of local living and the agricultural legacy. Enough to interest the serious visitor but attractive to small children as well

We went along to the Arran Heritage Museum to see the classic motorcycle show but got a lot more. It only costs £9 for a family & you can spend as long or as little amount of time there. With a tea room with a good selection of things to eat. Having lunch there will not break the bank like... More

Small museum but very personal to islanders. For those who feel that they may have a link to the island..it's very informative, especially if you meet with the local genealogy expert at te museum on certain days. The museum is small but even covers prehistoric period of the island. The food at the cafe looked wholesome albeit we never had... More

Great place for all £4 to get for adults. Excellent portrayal of the islands heritage. Car parking, cafe, shop, good stop for all ages. Cottages set up with a school room, farriers, WW1 & 2, heritage working cottage etc. Really interesting place to visit. Five minutes from Brodick ferry terminal.
