It's a small museum where you can see the typical last century accommodation / house. There's no much to see but it's overall interesting.

Missed out on this wee gem on my last visit to Arran so it was on my "to do" list for this year. What a treasure it is. Don't keep it for a rainy day visit. Very interesting and informative. Old traditions and way of life expertly shown. Very nice staff and very informative and friendly.

You really needn't wait for a wet day to visit this Museum as it contains many interesting aspects of life on Arran. The museum deals with Arran's past and its' role in war time, as well as some of the most interesting inhabitants. Parking is great and the entrance cost is reasonable. If you are visiting Brodick, best not to... More

The Heritage Museum offers visitors a glimpse into the life and times of early islanders. While many local communities host museums, this one also sports a great cafe and a creek side location. While most of the work to create the exhibits and information boards is done by volunteers the quality of the presentation is very good. Clearly lots of... More

There's lots to see in this museum even if it's raining outside! There's something for all the family with lots of interesting historical displays and facts about the people of Arran throughout the ages. We had jacket potatoes for lunch which had lovely fillings, friendly service too.

If you have any interest in history, don't miss this museum. For a very modest entry fee you can spend as long as you like browsing the varied exhibits, both indoor & outdoor. The cafe serves good home cooked food in generous portions & there are outside tables if the weather is suitable. Credit must be given to the volunteers... More

A truly magnificent folk museum. (One of the times we were there previously they were shoeing horses) with much to tell the visitor about Arran. Along side the museum is a shop and a great wee restaurant/cafe.where we had lunch.
