Reasonable entrance fee.
Discount for senior citizens.
Read up on information in ticket office first. Then visit black house, it is smokey in there but very interesting. Go around back to see peat stack.
Then cross road and there are further ruins of black houses to visit and a white house which is also worth a visit.
