Visit the West Highland Museum, world famous for its Jacobite exhibits but also for housing an excellent local history collection from archaeology to the present day.
Situated in the High Street in the heart of the historic town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, the West Highland Museum's collections tell the story of the region and its history. The most renowned and unusual collection relates to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite cause.
There is also a wealth of curious and fascinating collections relating to aspects of the lives of the people of the West Highlands, from the effects of political warfare, to the economic impact of tourism in the region, and the coming of the industrial and modern age.
There is a new exhibition telling the story of the Commandos in Lochaber during the Second World War.
Browse the shop and discover a wide range of interesting books, fine Jacobite glassware, silver jewellery, retro toys, posters and other gifts.
There are 2 stair lifts installed so all exhibition rooms are accessible to those that can use a stairlift.
