You're not quite sure what you'll find in the museum at Grantown on Spey from the outside. Contained in a small traditional building the museum is combined as the tourist information centre, staffed by volunteers. The inside, however, is modern, bright and well laid out....More

If it wasn’t for the fact that Grantown holds family ties, the museum would have been less interesting. I did enjoy the history, but it is only a few rooms and probably not worth the price if you are driving through town.More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It's good you enjoyed the historical aspects of the museum which will have been of interest if you have Grantown connections. Indeed, the people of Grantown have a big personal investment in the museum....More
