Education & Research
Shetland Museum and Archives offers a comprehensive education programme, with access to workshops focussing on different areas of our collections, and outreach sessions in the community.
The Museum and Archives is managed by the Shetland Amenity Trust, a small charity caring for Shetland's natural and cultural heritage. It is free to visit the Museum and Archives and we work hard to deliver resources and activities to as many people as possible for free. Donations are welcomed to help the Trust care for the collections and our heritage both now and in the future.
Resource packs are available for teachers or community groups and staff are on hand to assist with personal or academic research on artefacts or in the Archives.
The education services and resources offered all focus on aspects of Shetland’s rich heritage and culture and promoting access to the Shetland Museum and Archive’s collections. From fun pre-school sessions to post-graduate research and important reminiscence sessions with older groups; all age groups are catered for.
