Situated in Viewfield House, Nairn Museum offers visitors and locals alike a fascinating insight into the life and times of the town and surrounding area over the centuries. The wide range of permanent displays featuring various aspects of Nairn's history are well laid out and informative and, in addition a huge collection of archive material is available for study. Each year there is also a special programme of visiting exhibitions.

The Museum particularly welcomes children, providing a range of pick-up-and-touch exhibits and a safe play area.

Disabled facilities - wheelchair and stair lift available.

Nairn Museum is staffed by Volunteers. It is the hard work of these Volunteers both front of house and behind the scenes that allows the Museum to remain open.
