Jan 2021 – Please note that due to the ongoing Covid 19 Crisis – The museum, playpark, bistro and all activities run by the Discover Carmichael Visitor Centre are closed until further notice. We apologies for the inconvenience and look forward to reopening when restrictions allow.
Opened in 1994, the Carmichael Visitor Centre includes our own Farm Shop, The Carmichael Bistro & Tearoom and the former Edinburgh Wax Model Collection depicting Scotland’s millennium from Queen Margaret and Macbeth through to the present day.
Scotland’s story is told through realistic wax model scenes and informative story board interpretation. The scenes also depict crafts and culture from the countryside in this district. The visitor centre has a ‘Carmichael Clan Room’ dedicated to Carmichael Clan family history and the thousand year period that the family has lived on the land
As well as featuring Scotland’s only wax model collection we have an exciting adventure playground for children and interesting animals including chickens and deer to inspect and enjoy.
Carmichael history walks and treks for cyclists and on foot from the visitor centre are available and the Licensed Carmichael Bistro/Tearoom provides meals and snacks all day featuring Carmichael produce – our own award winning venison, beef and lamb.
The Visitor Centre is free of charge to enter. Donations are most welcome if you enjoy your experience, in the box in the shop.
