  • A lovely little place full of interesting stuff. Well worth a visit
  • Proper old style town museum. Victorian in origen. Gives an overview of the town's development and its importance in the world of maritime trade. Lots of information and memorabilia relating to WW I and II.
  • A good museum should a) give you a sense of history and a sense of place b) tell you a story which leaves you wanting more c) contain a lot of strange and unexpected things which suddenly make sense in this context. Stromness Museum is a very good one indeed.
  • A small and intimate museum. Very interesting. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • A fantastic museum full to the brim with interesting artefacts.
