Highland Folk Museum

The Highland Folk Museum, recognized as Britain’s first mainland open air museum opened at Kingussie in 1944.

Named Am Fasgadh (The Shelter) this became the third home for founder Dr. Isobel F. Grant’s renowned core collection of Highland material culture and as a living history museum with such as the Lewis Blackhouse became the inspiration for the larger Newtonmore site. Opened in 1995 the Newtonmore site has gone from strength to strength, proactively reflecting many aspects of Highland rural life and culture through collecting, preserving, interpreting for and interacting with individuals, groups, communities and institutions both within and beyond the Highlands.
