Arran Heritage Museum will re-open to the public on Wednesday 22nd July at 10.30am. We will then be opening 10.30am to 4.30pm every day for the rest of the season. You will see some necessary changes we have had to make in order to comply with restrictions still in place due to the Covid 19 pandemic but we are sure you will still be able to enjoy the museum again.

However, we regret that we have had to cancel all of our Special Event days for this season but they will be back in Season 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Isle of Arran Museum Trust.

he Isle of Arran Heritage Museum, founded in 1976 (open to the public in 1979) is on the main road, at Rosaburn, just north of Brodick, on the beautiful island of Arran, Scotland. Originally the site of a small school, the present group of buildings were a croft and smiddy, and include a farmhouse, cottage, bothy, milk house, laundry, stable, coach house and harness room. The exhibits reflect the social history, archaeology and geology of the island.

Adults can pursue an interest in the past or simply indulge in their nostalgia. Children visting the HERITAGE MUSEUM can enjoy the many “hands on” exhibits and school parties are welcomed.

Come and enjoy the home-made delights of Café Rosaburn, which offers a selection of light meals and snacks, or you may picnic in our riverside gardens, where young children can play with toys in the playhut, or have fun sitting on the big red tractor. Before you leave us, you can browse in our well stocked shop, where you can buy “appropriate” gifts, sweets and ice cream.

We are confident that a visit to the Isle of Arran Heritage Museum will be enjoyed by young and old alike, so why not come along and see us.
