The museum is home to a wide range of artefacts and activities for you to enjoy! Begin by following the museum’s timeline to discover just how the highlands were formed, whilst admiring the beautiful artefacts carved and left behind by local tribes. Uncover your inner Scotsman by dressing up in an 18th-century style highland kilt or try to learn a few Gaelic words to impress your friends with.
