Become a Friend of Stromness Museum

We are unique in Orkney in that we are run entirely by a board of voluntary trustees. However, we must still pay our staff, keep the lights on and maintain the property in Alfred Street.

One of the ways we do this is through admission fees, but another very valuable way you can support us is by becoming a member of the Orkney Natural History Society Museum, a friend of Stromness Museum.
