The Highland Folk Museum is situated within the boundaries of the Cairngorms National Park on two sites: one in Kingussie; the other two and a half miles away (4 Km) at Newtonmore.
Kingussie, opened in 1944, is the spiritual home of the Highland Folk Museum. Here visitors may see parts of the core collections as well as the ‘Blackhouse’, Britain’s oldest re-created building.
Newtonmore, opened in 1995, is a mile long living history site that includes re-constructed buildings, a 1700s ‘Township’, a 1940 working farm, live interpretation and a range of visitor facilities.
The aims of the Museum include preserving and recording aspects of Highland life from the 1700s onwards, as well as interpreting the people’s lives through interactive living history and activities.
