  • Excellent exhibits of Shetland history and industry. Very good information on the Shetland Bus. Run by volunteers I believe, who are clearly doing a great job. They also unlock Scalloway Castle which is on adjacent land.
  • What a fascinating little museum dedicated to the local history and that of the WW11 Norwegians fight against the Nazi occupation of their homeland. Worth your time to see for yourself.
  • Great help from those who work there and the locals who come to hang out.
  • Modern building housing a pleasant museum. Next to the ruins of Scalloway Castle. Inexpensive exhibition area. Small shop and small refreshment area. You wouldn't spend more than an hour here but worth stopping.
  • Small but very interesting museum: a lot of information, presented in a well-designed way, keeps you interested throughout. I especially liked the way it combines daily life, changing economy, and big events and eras. Also, very nice staff.
