From historic films and conferences to family days and dialect singing, Shetland Museum and Archives hosts a wide range of life long learning events which are linked to the collections, temporary exhibitions and local and national events. Held throughout the year, events cater for all ages and abilities.
Standard events which are run regularly include our 'Sheeksin' sessions where staff or guest speakers invite the public to come along for a 'sheeks' about a specific subject. These sessions run at 2.30 on the second Tuesday of each month. 'Dus Du Mind' is also a regular event, run in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland, where memories are shared and past times recalled. Subjects for both will be listed on this page.
