Museum of Island History

Discover the process of fossilisation and touch real fossils. Computers illustrate the history of the island. Microscopes can be used to observe a range of small artefacts in incredible detail. Amazing archaeology on display includes the Anglo-Saxon skillet, the Islandís earliest Christian object (see picture).
The gallery houses temporary exhibitions, which explore aspects of the island and its history. This allows the museum service to display objects from its collections, which are not on permanent display.
