GLEN­COE Folk Mu­seum is get­ting ready to cel­e­brate its 50th an­niver­sary in style by tak­ing part in a na­tion­wide fes­ti­val.

The Fes­ti­val of Mu­se­ums is an an­nual event co-or­di­nated by Mu­se­ums Gal­leries Scot­land. It show­cases Scot­land’s ex­ten­sive cul­tural of­fer­ing through more than 120 events tak­ing place over one weekend across the coun­try.

This year will be Scot­land’s largest Fes­ti­val of Mu­se­ums and Glen­coe Folk Mu­seum is step­ping back in time to host a fun-filled day of retro crafts and clas­sic games.

The mu­seum’s tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brates the five decades of his­tory that the mu­seum has wit­nessed since open­ing in 1967 through fash­ion, tech­nol­ogy and local events, and vis­i­tors are wel­come to add their own pho­tos and mem­o­ries to the rem­i­nis­cence board.

Re­live the Swing­ing Six­ties by cre­at­ing tie-dye tops and flower-power head­bands, make your own lava lamp, take part in a life­size Spiro­graph pic­ture and try some clas­sic 1960s games and toys.

The event takes place on Satur­day May 20 from 10am4pm, with free en­try to the mu­seum and a small charge for craft activities.
