The museum celebrates the history of Scalloway, with special reference to the Shetland Bus.

Our museum tells the story of Scalloway and its people from the earliest settlers right up to Scalloway's position in the present day. Perhaps the jewel in the crown of the museum's displays is the section dealing with the clandestine wartime operation which became known as the 'Shetland Bus'. This section of the museum houses the most extensive collection of artefacts and information on the these operations to be found outside Norway.
