The Highland Folk Museum, Newtonmore is situated within the boundaries of the Cairngorms National Park, situated 15 miles south of Aviemore.

The Newtonmore Living History Museum opened in 1995, and is located on a mile long site. This open air Museum includes re-constructed buildings, a 1700s 'Township', a 1940 working farm, live interpretation and a range of visitor facilities, which is still developing with new buildings opening each year.

The aims of the Museum include preserving and recording aspects of Highland life from the 1700s onwards, as well as interpreting the people's lives through interactive living history and activities.
