  • Modernised museum with a wide range of exhibits. We especially liked seeing some of the chessmen, all of whom used to be in London or Edinburgh. Easy parking, lovely setting. 
  • This new museum is an excellent facility with interesting family-friendly exhibits. There are staff on hand to offer information if needed. 
  • Excellent display of artifacts and artwork depicting the history of the Isle of Lewis. Lovely modern museum, and nice castle gardens/grounds.

  • The museum and archive have just recently reopened in their new location at the Castle. They provide an excellent insight into the history of Island life with a mix of traditional exhibits and multimedia. The museum includes a lot of personal stories which help bring the history to life. As with most Scottish museums entry is free (though you can make a donation). Would be good if it was a bit larger, one room wasnt yet in use when we visited but it was only the second day of opening. The attached cafe and gift shop are a bit expensive, but isn't that always the case these days.
