Learning at the Highland Folk Museum - Introduction
Please note that school and organised group bookings should be made through Heather or Maureen on 01540 673551. For more information about school visits, please visit the Schools pages through the link above.
Our multi-sense site offers plenty of opportunity to recall your own past or to understand something of how others once lived. Take time to make the most of the sights, sounds and smells around you.
To gain the most from a visit we’d suggest you purchase a copy of our Visitor Guide, only £4.00, which provides extra information that can enhance your experience of the site and its fascinating buildings and collections. Experienced costumed staff are also on hand to give further insights into life in the past and are more than happy to answer any questions you have.
An activity programme, featuring demonstrations of traditional crafts skills, runs throughout the summer, for a full programme, go to our Activities web page
We would also love to learn from you. If you have memories related to any of our site, please share these with our costumed staff.

The Highland Folk Museum is a great day out for families and if you’ve come to learn together there are lots of ways you can get more involved.
We pride ourselves in being family friendly and endorse "Kids in Museums Manifesto 2011" click on link for details
You may want to experience the site in your own way, enjoying fresh air, lots of space and a chance to see anything from a 1930s school and garden to a red squirrel or a 1700s Township. The Visitor Guide (£4.00) and our Children's Activity Booklet (£1.00) are available from reception. Friendly costumed staff can help you learn more about the buildings and stories you will encounter on site.
If you’re looking for something more we also offer resources and activities on site.
