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.

Other businesses at the old station are the Museum Coffee Shop, and Small Planet Trading gift shop.

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.
