  • This small museum doesn't have a lot of the interactive bells-and-whistles that major museums do for the younger set, but it was just fine for this baby boomer. They did have a grinding stone and some...  more »
  • This is a great example of a local museum at its best. Informative without being didactic and all the better for some of the sites being visible through the windows.

  • This is an outstanding museum. Although the building may be small, the amount of information and artifacts attractively and informatively displayed is impressive, and the incredible history in the surrounding landscape is stunning. This is an excellent family museum, perfect for kids as young as 6 or 7, and for all ages above. All of our party (ages 10, 16, 19, 44 and 45) very much enjoyed the hands-on displays that added to the full context of the exhibits. The cafe is really top-notch and the gift shop is lovely. I'd put this on par with the National Museum of Scotland, just highly focused and most of the things to see are in the landscape outside, which again makes it appealing for families! My one wish is that there was a guidebook to buy similar to those at Urquhart Castle, to consult as we walked the landscape and carry home with us after.
  • Well worth a visit if you are in the area. The local vicinity is steeped in history.
  • very informative with things they had on display look forward to going back when next up this way
  • Had great time with kids few years ago. But still got stone instruments cd, somewhere !
  • Personally I found myself internally excited before entering the museum and wasn't disappointed when I went inside. What greeted me was an impressive and very informative displays of prehistoric life in the surrounding area dating back to pre-Columba and Moluag times, which included interesting hands on experience which I have no doubt children of all ages would enjoy. I certainly did, especially the singing stones! What was impressive was the sizable population covering an exstensive area together with the number of Monoliths and other prehistoric monuments, some 800, that could be viewed at leisure. On returning to the cafeteria for a welcome drink and digest what we saw, we admired the building it was in as being impressive in its day and surmised about its possible occupiers. My companion described a thick set individual wearing furskin jacket and hose which had leather straps around the legs below the knee to the feet. He said that he was impressed to go to Fort Dunadd. I would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this or similar individuals in and around the museum
