An independent local museum run by volunteers, the building was opened in 1926 and has two galleries and a library/meeting room. It may be small but it has one of the best local collections of any museum in the country. From items of international importance such as the Viking ‘Hostage Stone’ and a Bronze Age jet necklace to an 18th century beggar’s badge and a Victorian Punch and Judy, it tells the story of the people of Bute and the flora and fauna of the island.
