    This museum is a gem that overlooks the port of Oban. Contains various types of material, both original and, although the environment is quite small, the richness of the collection which houses is really amazing. If you consider reading everything would be a visit of several hours that I would recommend. If you have little time, just focusing on the things that capture more attention, you can receive a great deal of information. The Museum is run by volunteers who have done it are doing an admirable job.
