“Insight”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you are a MacPherson then this is the place for you to visit. I found it riveting and the curator is a character.

“Curator is knowledgeable”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Regardless of your clan affiliation, this is a great, historic stop. The curator is knowledgeable and helpful and the exhibits are well researched. I'm working on a fictional novel and this was on my must see list. Bravo! Well done.

“Lots of stuffed into a small place”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Popped into this place when walking about Newtonmore, it has lots of information on the clan MacPherson and if you love Scottish clan history the you will love this. Some excellent displays like the long sword and some very nice paintings on show.

“Sheltering from the snow”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Returning from a walk it was snowing very hard and it was the first day opening of the Museum it was warm and very interesting.
If you was a Macpherson it would be a lot more interesting.
Very friendly staff

“Enjoyable for everyone, not just Macphersons!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

A great little museum with huge amounts of information on the Clan Macpherson. A fascinating story about cluny hiding out in a cave near Newtonmore which inspired an enjoyable walk after the museum visit.
