Worth a visit on a rainy day. Ladies who run this are lovely and couldnt be more helpful or proud of the museum. Lots of interesting artefacts and information about Nairn over the last century or so. Very reasonable entry fee.

A great place to visit with plenty to interest youngsters, older folks and all in between. The kids love to play on the typewriters and in the school room. The shrunken head is a great favourite.
