Bute Museum is joining in the national ‘Museums at Night’ initiative later this month.

The museum, which contains a fascinating selection of exhibits on the island’s natural and archaeological history and human heritage, will be open to the public from 6.30pm until 8.20pm on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18.

Hundreds of museums, art galleries and heritage spaces all over the UK will be opening up late during the weekend and putting on a fantastic mix of events.

Bute Museum is independently run by a group of trustees who are all members of the Buteshire Natural History Society, which established the museum shortly after the society’s foundation in 1905.

Though the contents and management of the museum are now overseen by a group of trustees separate to the society, the society still provides volunteers to help run the museum, while the building accommodates the society’s meetings throughout the year.
