This is £3 well spent. Much to see in this compact space, including a very nicely constructed presentation of the interior of a croft at the time of the massacre.

A quite small but very interesting museum on the main street of Glencoe Village. It is worth seeing and spending a little time learning some history.

Small but interesting local museum with a mixture of interesting exhibits. Good collection of photographs of the early, now defunct, railway in the area. Don’t miss the exhibits in the outhouses.

Interesting place to spend a half hour or so, learning about the local history. They have some interesting displays and the buildings themselves are interesting.

Chatty staff with good local and historical knowledge. It isn't a large building but much is made of the space available. I guess that it can get crowded but cheerful and welcoming staff gave us as much information as needed

Just looking at the outside picked my curiosity, but, alas, it was too late in the day to get into the museum. Everything is within walking distance from the Glencoe Inn in the village. Of course the glen is grand and beautiful around this village...More
