Bute Museum will be joining in the nationwide celebration of ‘Museums at Night’ this Friday, May 15.
While the island’s museum, located in Rothesay’s Stuart Street, may not have a cursed Egyptian stone to bring the animals to life, it does have the Hostage Stone, the internationally-significant archaeological discovery found during an excavation of Inchmarnock which spent much of last year on loan to a Viking history exhibition in Denmark.
The Hostage Stone, along with the museum’s other exhibits, will be open to visitors from 7pm to 10pm on May 15 - and entry will be free. There will also be fun quizzes for both adults and children and, weather permitting, a few moths from the museum’s annual ‘moth trapping’ survey, due to be conducted the previous night. We’ll see you there!
