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
Absolutely incredible museum. Very well done, directions to get here, working with the tourism board, the displays were super interesting. I snapped so many pictures on our bright day touring I forgot to read.some of the details. I would highly recommend a visit here if you are interested in history and learning more about what life was like on Skye.
Contained a vast amount of history on what life was like here in days gone by! The shop was very well set out and prices were very reasonable. Great to see something like this tucked away by itself!
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.
The museum was very interesting in all aspects of a crofter's life. And being in the buildings made it so much more real. Everything was beautifully presented. Excelent value for money
Great place to visit and not expensive. Fantastic look back in time a the way crofts used to be. Well worth going to see
