Welcome to Britain’s first open air museum

Welcome to the Highland Folk Museum.

Welcome to the Highland Folk Museum, where you can step back in time and experience life in the Highlands from 1700s to the 1950s. We have over 35 historical buildings onsite for you to explore and discover how people in the Highlands lived, worked, went to school, enjoyed their leisure time.

We are now closed for the winter and will reopen on 29 March 2024. In the meantime you can follow us on social media or explore the Museum virtually, more details are available below.
