Tuesday Travels. . .The Scalloway Museum, Shetland

on

I loved this caption.

This small museum is a definite stopping place if you visit Shetland.  It is only a small museum but there is so much to look at and read.  There is an excellent section on the story of the Shetland Bus.  I knew a little about it from fiction I had read which was set in Shetland but I learned so much more while in the museum. The museum’s website gives an excellent overview of the story of the Shetland Bus.

The displays on textiles, particularly knitting, were very informative.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. I also enjoyed the displays about the herring industry.

The section for children was an absolute delight.

Take the time to visit this museum, there is a lot of information to take on board.
