Tangwick Haa Museum


Eshaness, Shetland, Shetland, ZE2 9RS

    Discover the story of Northmavine and its people inside this former laird’s house which dates from the late 1600s.

    Originally built in the late 17th century for the Cheyne family, owners of the Tangwick estate, Tangwick Haa was converted into a local history museum in the late 1980s. The Laird’s Room is furnished as it would have been in the 19th century and is filled a variety of Victorian artefacts while the Reception Room displays agricultural tools and household objects from the period. There are also historical photographs and other exhibits relating to the area’s crafting and fishing industries on display. Upstairs, the main room is usually dedicated to an exhibition on a particular theme. The museum’s Family History section allows visitor to trace their genealogy by consulting parish and census records displayed on microfilm. Members of staff are also on hand to provide further assistance. Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities are available.
