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.
