Shetland's Textile Treasures

For those particularly interested in Shetland's famous textile industry, you'll be guided on a tour of both our lower and upper galleries to tell the story of our knitting history.

Now a recognised collection of national significance, you'll get the chance to learn much more about the lace and Fair Isle knitwear we have on display and the importance of this industry to Shetland. 

Tours will commence from the museum foyer and last approx. 45 minutes.

If you are interested in attending one of these tours but can’t make the time allocated, please contact us at [email protected] – we can arrange private tours – min charge for 8 persons.
