See an intriguing collection of rare fossils from Orkney and around the world and learn more about the heritage of the Orkney Isles.
The heritage galleries have been upgraded over the winter of 2015-16, with new information about boatbuilding in Burray and exhibits about life in Orkney during the First and Second World Wars, including a feature about the other ‘Italian Chapel’ built at POW Camp 34 on Burray.

The fossils and rocks collection contains some rare and beautifully preserved specimens.
