Crofthouse Museum

Boddam, Dunrossness, Shetland
Tel: 01595 695057

You can step back in time at the Crofthouse Museum.  Located in a delightful setting, this typical thatched 19th century Crofthouse has been restored to how it would have looked in the 1870s.  Smell the peat fire, discover the box beds and try to set the traditional Shetland mouse trap.  The Crofthouse also has a lovely garden with a path which leads to a restored watermill.
The Crofthouse Museum is open daily from 10am throughout the summer (May - September).  Entry is free, donations welcome.

Note: Due to the nature of the building it is not suitable for wheelchair access. Please also beware of low doorways and uneven floors.
