  • Such a great little museum, mostly run by volunteers, the work accomplished and the level of professionalism is astonishing. Billy who runs it was kind enough to open it during the closed season and we had the entire place to ourselves. He also has some fascinating stories from WW2 and we felt like it was both informative and touching. We learned a lot and can't recommend it enough. It also seemed very kid friendly!
  • Small but perfectly formed... this museum is a great place to understand more about the importance of Scalloway and the part it plays in Shetland life.
  • Fantastic museum. Run entirely by volunteers. Contains a fascinating display on the Shetland Bus (the Norwegian resistance boats during WW2).
  • Small museum, really nice place, lots of history, worth spending an hour in it
  • Excellent. Learnt a lot about Shetland.
