Overview

Visit the open-air museum with its vast collection of old houses. Enjoy a stroll between the picturesque houses and the indoor exhibitions, and get an insight into the cultural and architectural history of Sunnmore. Sunnmore Museum is a beautiful open air museum with 55 old and distinct houses. While walking in between these houses you feel as if you are put back in time, and you will see how people lived in earlier times. On Wednesdays during summer, there are a lot of activities going on at the museum. In the main building the fascinating exhibitions on archaeology and culture in the Sunnmore region will provide you with a unique insight into the life of the people who have inhabited this area for several thousand years. Take a look at the museum's vast boat collection too, including replicas of Viking ships. The beautiful area surrounding the museum is also excellent for walks.

This is a great museum to visit to see how they used to live. The sod roof buildings were interesting. The ship area has many older type boats including a viking long boat replica. The regular museum also had many artifacts. Nice tour.

Quite an interesting place and stunning in the sunshine. You will need a couple of hours to really explore the place. Watch out for the low ceilings in a couple of the houses. It's definately worth a visit.

There's a lot to see here. There's a maritime museum full of old boats, including a Viking long boat and the last of the Shetland buses. There's a regular museum. But it's the outdoor space that's the most fun, strolling among old houses and looking...More
