Kilmartin Museum

About this Organisation

Kilmartin Glen in Argyll is one of the world’s most significant archaeological landscapes. The Glen’s unique archaeological remains and rich natural heritage were the inspiration for the creation of Kilmartin Museum, which opened in 1997. For 20 years, Kilmartin Museum has been collecting, conserving, and revealing the stories of this special place and the artefacts found here. Kilmartin Museum inspires and educates people by interpreting, explaining and conserving the internationally important archaeological landscape, artefacts and natural heritage of Kilmartin Glen.

Kilmartin Museum Company Ltd SC022744 (a Scottish Charitable Company SC502086), which operates the Museum, is managed by a board of Directors, and run by a team of dedicated staff. We are also supported by our very valued volunteers.

As well as running a museum, café and shop, we run an active and vibrant education service which focuses on natural and cultural heritage and targets all age groups across the region. There is much more for us to learn about the people who lived here before us, so we also undertake archaeological research and excavation across Argyll to aid our understanding of this amazing place. The Museum also houses the Marion Campbell Library, which acts as a valuable research resource.
