  • Very well worth a visit with lots to see - mainly on a maritime theme. Upstairs is a natural history section. At least an hour should be allowed for a visit to this museum  more »

  • 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.
  • Lots of Orkney & Stromness relics and memorabilia. The kids' activity to get them going round is the best I've ever seen anywhere so extra credit for that!
  • Just too too much to even try to see in one day. Admission ticket lasts for a week so good for a bad weather day. You also get a guide book. Staff ate lovely and very patient even with the silly questions.
  • Outstanding and very interesting collection, a friendly host plus child friendly highly recommended
  • Packed full of historical facts about Orkney, from scara brae to the royal oak. A must for history buffs
