How we are managed

A heritage charity

Shetland Museum and Archives is managed by Shetland Amenity Trust – a not-for-profit charitable trust with a core priority to preserve and enhance everything that is distinctive about Shetland's history, cultural and natural heritage, promoting access to it whether physical or intellectual. The artefacts in the Museum and Archive collections remain under ownership of Shetland Islands Council which operates a Service Level Agreement with Shetland Amenity Trust whereby the Trust operates the Museum and Archives service on behalf of the local authority.
