This beautiful building, the home of the Harris Tweed Authority, houses an exhibition detailing the history and development of Harris tweed industry over the years.
£2 admission fee ( £3 with weaving demonstration, not all day. )
There is an audio tour too.
Harris Tweed ........ The story of a real place with a rich history and culture, beautiful landscape and vibrant communities located in Scotland’s remote and fascinating Outer Hebrides islands.

I thought this would be a good explanation about Harris tweed. But bearing in mind you have to pay, The exhibition is just one room and I felt the content was rather lightweight (unlike the tweed!). There are samples of the wool, a few panels on the walls and a weaving machine in the middle of the room (I believe there are demonstrations at set times, but not when I was there). I saw the whole thing in about fifteen minutes, tops. I would have liked to have learnt more about the different kinds of tweed and about the weavers themselves. The staff were helpful and answered my questions, but I learnt much more about tweed and the weavers in Tweedastic in Stornoway and especially at the Harris Tweed shop in Grosebay. And I saw weaving being done at Gearrannan.

I found this very interesting and would suggest that this is a must to understand Lewis/Harris' culture and history. I went because I am interested in fabric. However, it did provide much more information about the historical background of the weaving, how people lived, how it is protected today, who does it today, and much more. It doesn't take long to look at. It had four videos I think. I had heard some songs at the Mod in Tobermory, that I found out here were used to prepare the tweed - it suddenly made sense. They ask for a small donation for entry. It has an audio that you can use if you want. I would suggest you do. It is probably wheelchair accessible - it was upstairs but it looked like the kind of government building that would have an elevator. I am not so sure about kids - I think they would be in and out of there in 15 minutes. But, worth going anyhow even if you only get 15 minutes of information.

Nicely curated exhibit on the history of Harris tweed, including samples of wool, models of looms and historic videos. A 20-minute audio tour guides visitors though the entire exhibit. Very well-done and worth a visit, especially if you own or are interested in procuring some tweed yourself. Staff are very friendly.

Really well designed museum room telling the story of Harris Tweed with archive film, a working loom, samples of fabric in a range of colours and patterns, through to finished garments. Excellent balance gives enough information without overwhelming, and there are samples to touch and feel. We got the audio guide but actually the person selling tickets was so knowledgable that we ended up just listening to her! There are weaving demonstrations at set times in the summer season. Well worth a visit - the tweed is embedded in the islands' history and economy, and you will see it for sale everywhere you go, so it is interesting to understand some of the history.
