Come “out of hours” and experience the Shetland Textile Museum in a way not normally available to the general public. Touch the various items in our Handling Collection, handle a few items from our main Collection (gloves provided), enjoy Cream Teas and browse our exhibitions and shop.
Transport information: There is no public transport directly to the Museum, which is on the outskirts of Lerwick, but there is a bus-stop on the main road, a few hundred yards away, where the various buses for the North Mainland will stop.
The Museum is 1.7 miles/ 2.7km from the Town Centre, and 0.6 miles/1 km from the Holmsgarth Ferry Terminal, and is easy walking on pavements. Taxis run from the Town Centre. There is ample free parking outside the Museum.
