Bute Museum at night

Bute Museum opened its doors to the public, free of charge, as part of the ‘Museums at Night’ initiative being run across the country.

Volunteers were on hand during the event, held on Friday and Saturday, to answer questions from members of the public, who were invited to view the various displays and artefacts from Bute’s vast and rich history.

By far the most popular presentation was that of a ‘Then and Now’ slideshow, which showed photos from bygone days of Bute in comparison to photos taken in the same location in 2013.

Anne Speirs, curator of history at Bute Museum, told us: “Museums at Night has given us the opportunity to invite members of the community to come and see our displays - completely free of charge - and it’s been very well attended.”
