Campbeltown Museum

Campbeltown Museum offers a unique insight into the town's past. It has a fascinating and nationally important archaeological collection. Find out about the creation of the natural landscape of Kintyre and how its first peoples came to Kintyre to farm the area’s fertile lands. Neolithic stone axe heads and cooking pots sit alongside Bronze Age jet necklaces and swords. A gold Viking arm ring highlights Argyll’s seafaring past.

Campbeltown Museum occupies a sizeable room in an A-listed building which originally also housed the public library. It was designed by the Glasgow architect JJ Burnet. Burnet’s original design included a loggia opening to a sheltered inner garden. This garden has since been redesigned and dedicated to the memory of Linda McCartney.

Open all year.
