        • I love it there, been many times. I go every year to see whats been added. One of the best days out in Scotland. If you want to do the place justice, give yourself about 5 or 6 hours. I've not been to the new museum yet, but will in a few weeks as we are going back again.
        • I can't believe this place is free! Well worth a visit, especially the old school class room where they have an old fashioned teacher who will teach you how to write with a quill, you had better do neat work or you may just get the belt! Kids loved the old sweety shop (so did the adults) actors and guides dotted around the place bringing the areas and houses to life.
        • A charming, though fairly large, folk museum. They have three sections: one related to farms in the early 20th century, one that's more of a 1940 village with typical small town buildings and shops, and the third section being a recreation of a 1800's highland village, which is what I believed the whole thing was going to be. The staff was really nice, the entry is donation based so you pay what you want, and all sections are interesting in their own way. Well worth a visit.
        • A hidden gem. We stopped off here on the way down the A9 and ended up spending hours and hours there. Lots to engage with for all the family, fun and informative.
        • What a great place to visit! You can spend around 3h there and still feel that you have not seen it all! The buildings and their interiors have so much detail. It tells you so much about the history of the area right from the 18th century. I also couldn't believe that it's free to go in, apart from encouraging donations from visitors. Definitely recommend a visit here.

        • A great day out
          This is a museum with a difference as it's open-air. It is made up of a number of buildings from 1800 to present. Some of the buildings are real houses that were relocated to the museum so are really interesting. There is a whole 1800s homestead of old blackhouses, some have peat fires burning and no Chimneys so are pretty smelly and stuffy - but great as you really experience how they lived. There is also a farm area that has a garden, a cow you can milk and lots of implements, some of which are pretty scary from a health and safety perspective. The thing we liked best was the old schoolhouse - we went in with children and we're greeted by the schoolmaster shouting at us for being late and telling us to sit down! The children were given old writing nibs and ink and we were treated to a lesson. It was great fun! There are quite a few staff at the museum dressed up as period dwellers and they are happy to answer questions. You can spend a whole day here easily.

          It's a great way to experience how people lived in the highlands over the last few hundred years and it's free! You are asked to leave a donation.

          There is a cafe serving food and drinks, toilets and a small shop on site. Ther is also an old fashioned sweetie shop which my other half spent a fortune in!

          Transport is by train/bus to Newtonmore then a 15 minute walk. It is easily accessible from the A9. The museum is closed over the winter.
