The New Museum Space

As an accredited museum, we are committed to preserving, studying and displaying our collections and making them accessible to all. Thanks to a grant from Museums and Galleries Scotland, we gave our museum a well-deserved facelift in 2019.

Excavations of Oakbank Crannog began in 1980 but very few of the artefacts discovered have been displayed since then. Our grant-aided project helped place all of our collections into the museum with new interpretation panels and graphics.

What's New?

  • An exciting timeline will help you find our crannog location 2,500 years ago within the vast expanse of prehistoric time and within a wider European context.  
  • A study centre will allow you to browse our collections, research our library and find out more about archaeological sites in Scotland, with the help of a volunteer museum steward.  Contact us if you are interested in joining the steward team. 
  • Our 'Open the Box' project will allow you to fully explore the collections which will be arranged in a visual access storage display.  If you are a member of a community group or school, why not get in touch with us to join the project and choose your own box to open. 
  • New, object-rich, displays will show never-before-seen 2,500-year-old artefacts. 
  • A special exhibition on prehistoric music, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
