Kilmartin Museum

Contact details

Kilmartin Glen, in the heart of Mid Argyll, is one of Scotland's richest prehistoric landscapes. Over 800 historic monuments, cairns, standing stones, stone circles and rock art dating back over 5000 years have been recorded within this area. Kilmartin Museum collects and cares for archaeological objects that are found, by chance or excavation in Mid Argyll. Enjoy these artefacts in the museum gallery and then step outside into the landscape to enjoy the sites and monuments where they were found. The museum continues to carry out archaeological surveys and its excavations are continually uncovering new and exciting artefacts. There are lots of hands on interactive activities for children including rubbings, flour grinding and objects to handle. There's also a child-friendly cafe and gift and book shop stocked with jewellery, art, cards and craftwork from local artisans. The bookshop provides a range of fiction and reference books, of which many have a local or Scottish theme.
