We're welcoming visitors back to Orkney - read our update for the latest information.
  • Longhope Lifeboat Museum, Orkney


As you might expect in a community with such a rich history, Orkney has some truly brilliant museums where you can delve deeper into every aspect of our islands’ story.

Our museums all have a common goal – to inform, engage and entertain, while protecting a heritage spanning thousands and thousands of years.

It’s not all about static displays either. Orkney’s museums are living, breathing assets for local people and visitors alike, with a continually evolving programme of events and exhibitions that keep our proud history alive.
