The Highland Museum of Childhood is located in the old railway station in the spa village of Strathpeffer. The museum was originally based on the doll and toy collection of former Strathpeffer resident Mrs Angela Kellie. Over the years though we have collected children’s toys, games, costume, books , photographs and much more.
The museum also has an education space and collections store – The Goods Shed – at the end of the platform. Built in 2010 it used to run events for schools, families & children and for adult education programmes.
The Highland Museum of Childhood is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) no SCO33930 known as The Old Strathpeffer Railway Station Trust which owns the station building and grounds and manages the museum. To find out more about us and view our current AGM minutes click here.
