Family activity days are regularly scheduled and often tie in with seasonal themes or exhibition topics.

Come along and make a boat to sail, design your own Up Helly Aa shield or enjoy carol singing in the boat hall. See the Event Listings page for details of upcoming events.

Day to day activities in the galleries include dressing up boxes, interactive displays to design a Fair Isle jumper, or even take a virtual tour of the historic fishing station at Fethaland. There are many additional, free, activities for families to enjoy during a visit to Shetland Museum and Archives – see the Visit Us pages for details of what’s on offer.
