Our Heritage Galleries have had a facelift!

Following the major upgrade to the downstairs fossil and geology galleries in 2012-13, and the opening of the new Building the Barriers exhibition downstairs, we are pleased to announce that, over the winter of 2015-16 we have been upgrading the Orkney Heritage Galleries upstairs at the Fossil & Heritage Centre.

The Centre's cafe, which is run by local volunteers, has a new look for 2016! To mark the changes to the Heritage Galleries, the cafe has been re-launched as a Heritage Tearoom, offering a range of hearty soups, local produce and delicious home-bakes in a warm and friendly environment with lovely views. Even the staff are in period costume!

The Gift Shop has a wide range of arts and crafts, jewellery, traditional toys, gemstones, books, cards and CDs. Take your time to browse the unusual and extensive range of goods on offer.

" Exceptional! Absolutely fantastic - better than any museum we've been to."
