Quick march to the future Museum!

It’s all change at The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum as we close our doors on 31 August 2018 to start work on an exciting £4M redevelopment.

This ambitious project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and we have secured substantial funding from other supporters.

The pressure is on to raise the remaining funds to ensure the new Museum opens in June 2019 as a premier visitor attraction and a lasting tribute to those who served in the Regiment.

The story so far

Under threat of closure following funding cuts, the Museum is embarking on a £4M renewal project. The project will ensure the Museum is sustainable for the future and meets the expectation of today’s visitors.

Uniquely among military museums, we are setting our story against the social history of Scotland, covering such aspects as the Highland Clearances, shipbuilding and the industrialisation of the Central Belt of Scotland. The Museum will continue to provide a focal point for activities of veterans and serving soldiers.

Support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and other donors has enabled us to start work on this major redevelopment project, but we still need your help to raise the remaining funds and ensure we can welcome you to our new Museum in June 2019.

We want you to be part of this exciting journey so will keep you up to date here with news as the work progresses. We will also regularly be updating our Facebook and Twitter with images of how the work is progressing, so check there for the latest pictures.

July 2018: We're off!

 #HLFsupported We are delighted to annouce that we have just been awarded £973K from Heritage Lottery Fund thanks to money raised by #nationallottery players. 

Lucy Casot, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund in Scotland, said:  “This award marks a key change for The Argyll & Sutherland Museum. It will be transformed from a traditional military museum to one which engages visitors in a modern and exciting way as they learn about life as a soldier over the past 200 years.

“Thanks to players of the National Lottery, current cramped conditions will be replaced with bright, contemporary displays. Better access will allow many more people to visit ensuring a brighter future for The Argyll and Sutherland Museum and its important collections.”

There is a huge amount of work to be done before the building work can commence – letting contracts, decanting the Collection and raising the remaining funds. The Museum will be closing  to the public on 31 August 2018 to enable the decant to start. We expect to reopen at the end of June 2019.
