The Whalsay Heritage and Community Centre is an excellent place to visit and find out about the isle's local heritage, culture and tourist information.
We display permanent exhibitions of Whalsay's fishing activities through the ages and information about the Lairds and their influence on the isle. Each winter committee members develop additional pieces of local history for seasonal exhibition; these can all be viewed during summer opening times.
Summer: 2pm - 5pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1st May - 29th September
Winter: 7 - 9pm Wednesdays from 1st October - 30th April
