Definitely worth a visit. It's a small museum, but they have managed to use the space to the max. The museum has a bit of everything (agricultural, medical, everyday life, war exhibitions etc).

This is a tiny museum inside an 18th century crofters house plus a few other buildings. It is chockablock full of items varying from household knickknacks to clothing to armour and weapons demonstrating the history of the area, the ingenuity of the Scots, plus what life would have been like. There's a display of a doctor's surgery, a farm tools display, plus a household goods display demonstrating things such as how they rolled out butter and made soap. There's also a detailed history of the Glencoe massacre. It's definitely worth a visit. It will take about an hour to look through everything depending on how closely you look at and read about all the items on display.

This is a very small museum in a small thatched building. That said a lot of effort has been put into the displays and artefacts. Uniforms and dresses from the 18th century. The story of the MacDonald clan was especially well done and quite sad in how it happened. The medical room transforms you back in time. A shout out to Paul who was very helpful and enjoyed telling us about what is on display. If you visit don’t expect a huge museum but appreciate the time and trouble and obvious passion that has gone into putting this together.
