Great place to introduce the history of the area. Different sections are explained in different rooms. Mind your head, the doorways are very low.

Fantastic little museum, reasonably priced. It's full of exhibitions and items relating to the Highland way of life generally and mire specifically to Glencoe. Well worth a visit for all the history.
