Scottish Tartans Museum




Franklin, NC – The Scottish Tartans Museum was founded by Scottish Tartans Society, formed in Scotland in 1963 to study the origins, history and development of tartans. The Society has two museums–one in Keith, Scotland, and one in Franklin, NC. The Franklin Museum not only displays Scottish Tartans, but covers various aspects of the Scottish experience — culture, history, dress, migration and military. Visitors are invited to view their family tartan, connect with their clan, and learn about the history of Highland Dress. The museum can also help you if you are interested in researching the recommended tartan for a particular surname, or would like a full color print out of your tartan, with thread count.
