The museum re-opened for the 2022 season on March 2nd. We look forward to welcoming you.

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.
