Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

In 1850 wild storms ripped the grass from a high dune known as Skara Brae, exposing a Neolithic village! Now a part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site ,your family can experience a vivid impression of the realities of a prehistoric village, a real picture of life around 5,000 years ago, including ancient homes fitted with stone furniture!. An informative visitor centre provides touch-screen presentations plus exhibition area and audio visual room, with fun fact-finding quizzes for children and adults and an opportunity to see artefacts discovered during the exciting archaeological excavations in the 1970s. The sense of buried significance waiting to be found tends to appeal to all children!
There is also a cafe (which may have restricted opening hours in the winter) and a well stocked gift shop selling locally made souvenirs and crafts.
If you're in the area then it's worth noting that it's on the National Cycle Network, so you can have a mini adventure just getting there!
