With an entrance fee of only £3 this museum is excellent value for money. The museum consists of 6 stone walled, thatched roof cottages, a Croft, barn, byre, weaver’s cottage, old smithy and Ceilidh house. There are many old photos of Skye and other historical information such as the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie within the buildings, along with genuine old tools and other implements from the days when these cottages were inhabited. The whole experience is extremely interesting and if in the area is a must to visit.

We spent about an hour wandering around the old houses to see how island life was like years ago and found it very interesting - well worth a trip if you are ever in the locality

There are a number of crofts each crammed with the artefacts of everyday ( hard life) of the local people. Lots of interesting information about their lives and times.

that holds amazingly enriching information regarding how highlanders worked and lived, not that long ago. The gift shop, as the museum, has an humble appearance. If you see anything you like, buy it - you can not find better option anywhere else. My daughter bought an Isle of Skye hoodie and wouldn't take it off for the rest of the Scottish trip

The museum itself is very informative and interesting, our grandsons loved it. Very good price at £3 per adult . There are several thatched cottages giving a historical insight into life on Skye hundreds of years ago. The downside is that there are no toilets in the museum, you have to go outside to the public toilet, not the cleanest and where there is a begging note pleading for donations. To be honest I don,t think that this is a necessity, its a bit of a poor reflection on Scotland. It might be better having a toilet inside the museum and charging an extra £ onto the entry fee. Toilet issues aside the museum was worth the drive
