On the remote island of Fetlar, the locals have created the ‘Fetlar Interpretive Centre’, “we are a small, dynamic community museum”. In the museum you can enjoy many exhibitions on history, archaeology, folklore and wildlife. They also hold an extensive archive of photographs going back to the 1860’s along with documents and diaries from the late 1800’s to the present day. “We are particularly proud of our interactive computer presentations, created in Fetlar, on Fetlar’s history, archaeology, folklore and wildlife. We can even show you a variety of moving films (on video) from the 1930’s onwards. For those with ancestors in the island, why not come and browse our genealogical database?”

It is well worth making the journey to visit the museum, which is a winner of many awards including, a 4 star Scottish Tourist Board Award and in 2000, Fetlar became the first museum in Shetland to achieve full registration under Phase Two of the National Museums Registration Scheme.
