Great museum for people who have a little knowledge of the subject matter and would like to learn more. Very compact, but lots of interesting exhibits and information.

Excellent museum entered through reception/shop/cafe. Buy tickets to go around the museum exhibits - they are well worth seeing + there is an intriguing wall chart showing human progress.

A stunning little museum with loads of history and very friendly staff. We were given a very useful map to find the standing stones. We really enjoyed looking at all the artifacts on display

This small museum is next to a field of cairns and standing stones and does a thoughtful job of communicating the evolution of Scotland's environment and human's approach to living in it. The coolest thing about this museum is that it displays artifacts actually found...More

This was an ideal stop as we passed through the village of Kilmartin. First impressions are definitely deceiving. Although it may look small and not up to much inside lies an abundance of history and artefacts. When inside you instinctively know that much thought and...More

There is a path without steps from the car park to the Museum - don't use the short cut next to the toilets as it has uneven stone steps but keep to the track towards the front of the 'house' and left of the shortcut and you... More
