Unfortunately we have decided to close the Museum until the new year. We hope to be back up and running next year. 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. FREE ENTRY.
We are an independent museum with FREE admission situated in the High Street in the heart of the historic town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.
DISCOVER a nationally important collection telling the turbulent history of the West Highlands.
EXPLORE eight rooms packed with fascinating objects, from Rob Roy’s sporran and treasure from a shipwrecked Spanish Armada galleon, to the bagpipes played at Bannockburn in 1314. Visit our new Commando exhibition telling the story of the Commandos training in Lochaber.
IMAGINE stepping out onto the battlefield in the ‘45 rebellion, as you enjoy our collection of Jacobite weapons, medals, and miniatures – we even have Bonnie Prince Charlie’s embroidered silk waistcoat.
BROWSE our shop, with its wide range of Scottish books, fine Jacobite glassware, silver jewellery, games, toys and other gifts.
