The Highland Folk Museum brings to life the domestic and working conditions of earlier Highland peoples. Visitors to this living history Museum can learn how our Scottish Highland ancestors lived, how they built their homes, how they tilled the soil and how they dressed, in a friendly and welcoming environment. An award winning visitor attraction, the Museum not only encapsulates human endeavour and development in Highland life from the 1700s to the present day, but offers an opportunity to explore a beautiful natural setting, home to red squirrels and tree creepers. A great day out for everyone!

Today is the sixth anniversary of Am Fasgadh being handed over to us, brand new and ready to receive our collection of 12,000 objects! It looked so empty back then but we soon started filling our collections store.
We'd also like to say Happy 10th Anniversary to our colleagues at the Highland Archive Centre in Inverness who are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their amazing facility - if you have't been, do go and see them!
This week we also had a visit from Newtonmore Primary School who are studying World War Two this term. The children came to see items from our collection and to visit our wartime kitchen, where they learnt about rationing with Rachel, one of our curators.
