Oban War and Peace Museum boasts interesting collection of artefacts and photographs showing many aspects of life in Oban and the area through the years, including information on the strategic role played by the area during WWII when Oban Bay was home to Flying Boats.Find out about old Oban, the ferries, the fishing and maritime industries, the railway and local sport. There is a fine collection of Military badges and probably the largest Flying Boat model in Scotland! The Museum was founded in 1995 as an exhibition to mark the 50th anniversary of the ending of WWII. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and has developed the scope of its displays. In 2006 it moved into its own premises in the Old Oban Times building.  The museum is completely independent and is manned entirely by a willing team of volunteer Watchkeepers who between them can recall a great many stories about the town.
