Visit our Museum Galleries - booking essential.
The Galleries have been split into 3 zones and you can move around each following a one-way system. You and your booked group will be the only ones in each zone at one time ensuring you remain socially distanced from other groups at all times.
The galleries integrate Shetland Museum and Archives collections to tell Shetland’s story in the most complete and accessible way.
In the lower gallery you will discover Shetland’s journey from its geological beginnings to circa 1800, finishing in the dramatic Boat Hall which spans a full three stories. Once upstairs, take time to admire the boats from the viewing balcony before entering the upper gallery to discover Shetland from circa 1800 to the present day.
The galleries contain twelve themed zones; find out more about these zones by clicking on the links below.
