  • Awesome museum of Orkney history from prehistoric to modern day. Lots of hands on things for the kids including quizzes and 'pot making'. It's not huge but they pack a lot in! Definately worth an hour...  more »
  • Small museum located in a historic building opposite the Cathedral and cluttered historical remains from all periods.

There are also interactive sections for children and a small store near the entrance (free). Recommended.
