Nestled in the stunning landscape of Glenesk, the Folk Museum offers unforgettable heritage and hospitality for all.
Originally created by local schoolteacher Greta Michie in 1955, the museum celebrates the unique lifestyle of the Glen. It showcases the creativity, community, and industriousness of people past and present; and is surprising and familiar in equal measure.
The museum is open to all free of charge, with any donations gratefully received. Stroll around the galleries, and enjoy the gardens and wee woodland walk.
Enjoy amazing views from the cosy atmosphere of the Glenesk Folk Museum Cafe, serving home baking and hot drinks as well as simple soup lunches and Afternoon Teas to order (24 hour notice required).
Tuesday to Sunday – 10am to 4.30pm
