Community views sought on the future town's museum

Postby Kintyre Forum News » Tue Nov 25, 2014 10:43 pm

Argyll and Bute Council wants to hear the views of the Campbeltown and Kintyre communities on the development of Campbeltown Museum in its iconic building on Hall Street.

The doors will be thrown open to everyone who has a view, ideas or is keen to discuss or simply listen. Everyone is welcome – regular museum visitors and those who may never have stepped through the door before.

The aim is to discuss the development potential of the museum including future displays and interpretations, access and ways in which the Friends of Campbeltown Museum can continue their valuable support.

The public consultation will take place on Wednesday 26 November from 7.30 – 9pm

Campbeltown Museum offers a unique insight into Campbeltown’s ancient and more modern past. With a fascinating and nationally important archaeological collection, the museum describes 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.

The above link is from the forum two years ago.It would seem the last sighting of the said temple was at the Masonic Hall.

Unless someone knows different :?:

Good question. Anyone know where it is? There is so much history in these parts that there are so many options for the museum!
