Admiralty Gateway Peterhead
However, listen to the commentary and take time to wander about, this is about as real as it gets and is an antidote to the usual soporific theme museums.

The Famous Grouse Experience Crieff
The only distillery that still uses the really old fashioned, original open mash tun processes, so therefore as much a museum as a simple tour.

Croft House Museum Lerwick
I definitely recommend a visit to the Croft House Museum to understand and experience a part of Shetland's history and a way of life.
