Skye Museum Of Island Life - Review
This museum has some of the antique household and farming instruments that were once used by the Scottish people whose occupation was predominantly farming and cultivation. The museum consists of a series of cottages each representing the lifestyle and homes of crofters. A century ago, all the necessities were fulfilled by themselves such as weaving for the family, casting own tools, growing crops for private fulfillment and so on. Every crofter used to do it for his own familial use and not for commercial purpose. Each section of the cottages represents different features associated with social and private life of a human being. The museum is an ideal place for having a peep into the bygone days and to know how the earlier generations survived.
The attractions include:
- Croft Kitchen
- Croft Bedroom
- The Barn
- Weaver’s Cottage
- The Old smithy
- Ceilidh House

Skye Museum Of Island Life, Kilmuir Reviews
Beautiful place with lots of interesting things to look at and read about. A lot of reviews say you need about 20 minutes but we found this to be way too little time! For a small entry fee you get at least 30 minutes of leisurely reading and exploring - definitely worth a visit.
Great to see how our ancestors lived, if you can call it that, I don't think there would be many of us that could survive the hardships they had. Very reasonable entrance fee. Nice but understaffed gift shop.
Cute and friendly. Really interesting to learn more about how people lived here in the not-so-recent past. Lots of period artifacts. Some of the exhibits are just walls of text with a couple pictures. Needs a better copy editor. Still, all the info is interesting, you'll just need to judge how much time you want to spend reading a textbook. Nice gift shop
Stepped back in time, once I exited the gift shop. A small village with all the Ye Olde Shoppes, houses and a school. The gift shop is also well worth it... The Harris Tweed is well priced
Very interesting & packed with vintage tools from the past.Lovely old photos too.Then a very nice shop with Scottish gifts
