We spent some time looking at all the memorabilia of the past, was very humbling and interesting to find out the local history involved. All the sacrifices made and remembered. The staff were friendly and told local stories. Thank you.

Interesting collection of war artifacts from the two world wars, with a focus on the Oban area. Not a professional museum, but a great collection by people who care to preserve their history.

There are so many memories here and if you enjoy military memorabilia then this is the place to visit. It is free entry but leave a donation as all helps for the upkeep. Thank you to the volunteers for their help too. Great job too.

This is an excellent little community museum. We had no idea of the diverse and interesting history of Oban until we spent 60 minutes here. The museum is staffed by very knowledgeable volunteers who do an excellent job. Really pleased we popped in.

One might disconsider Oban for its worth if this museum is missed. The real veterans actually work here. Small enough to comprehend and leave with knowledge.

We were very happy to get out of the rain and accidentally hit upon this gem of a museum. It’s very tiny but crammed full of fascinating memorabilia and a very cheeky volunteer who made the experience much more memorable. Lovely experience.
