This award winning accredited museum was opened in 2002 to house our growing collection of artefacts and paintings. Six interconnecting galleries take you through 1500 years of the history and culture of the area once known as the Kingdom of the Isles.

A seventh gallery is the venue for special exhibitions that change each year. A poetry trail, children’s quizzes and interactive exhibits round off our museum provision.
