Atholl Country Life Museum 2016

 

Atholl Museum Gearing Up for Summer!
With the arrival of the curlews and lapwings on the hill and this year's swallows starting to rear their young, Atholl Country Life Museum is getting ready for the 2016 summer season. From 1 June the former school in Blair Atholl moves from weekend only to daily opening from 1.30 pm to 5.00 pm. Then in July and August Highland Perthshire's favourite museum opens from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm daily on week days and 1.30 to 5.00 at weekends.
Museum founder John Cameron is hoping for a good summer and that local people and visitors will continue to be able to enjoy the displays in the building proper, and in the reconstructed Trinafour post office behind. "There have been one or two modifications to the displays this year. We've also added cruck timber frames, typical of rural Scottish architecture in the early nineteenth century, to our ever-expanding range of artefacts. The museum gives a good flavour of bygone Scottish rural life above the highland line and there are fascinating displays and photographs of people, tangible items and themes of importance to the Atholl area like agriculture, the railway, the landscape and specific events. A visit won't occupy a whole day - maybe an hour or two depending on how much you want to see and absorb - and we get very good feedback from everyone who has spent time here. Locals can enjoy the museum as part of a relaxing and happy day out in the Atholl area. Come and try it. There are lots of things to appeal to the kids too!"
Admission is £4 per adult and £3 for senior citizens. Children under 17 accompanied by adults are admitted free. You can keep up to date with what's going on by logging on to www.athollcountrylifemuseum.org.uk and you can like the museum's facebook page too!
