The Staffin Dinosaur Museum is home to an internationally acclaimed collection of dinosaur fossils. The Staffin Dinosaur Museum was established by Dugald Ross in 1976 when he was only a teenager. The species he identified in the area include Stegosaurus, Megalosaurus, Cetiosaurus, Hadrosaurus, and Ceolophysis. It is located in an old stone barn by the roadside.

Staffin Dinosaur Museum offers tours of the infamously difficult to find dinosaur footprints of Staffin Bay, as well as first-hand accounts from the man who discovered all of the fossils in the museum.
