Highland Folk Museum thanks visitors for their support

Highland Folk Museum welcomed 12,257 visitors after opening again at the end of July operators High Life Highland have said today.

The outdoor Visitor attraction was one of the first to reopen when restrictions were lifted back in July. The number of visitors on site at one time were restricted initially and a booking system was introduced for customers to support Trace and Protect.

Operations Manager for High Life Highland Lesley Junor said, β€œWe have been really pleased with the support from customers this year, reopening was a major task having to rethink the way we approached everything, and our staff were fantastic in making sure we provided a COVID secure environment for our visitors.

The museum closed on the 31st October for the season and is planned to reopen on 1st April 2021 in time for Easter.

Ms Junor continued, β€œThe feedback from visitors has been excellent and our Highland Cows Lucky and Sprout have been a star attraction once again. It was very pleasing to see the museum being enjoyed by visitors again over the last 14 weeks and we look forward to welcoming everyone again in the new year.
