We were very keen to visit this small but fascinating museum as it told the story very clearly of the local people from Oban and the interesting events that occurred there. I had no idea exactly how many of our armed forces operated here with regards to the convoys and air cover from the sea planes and of course all the other support arms, to them thank you.

An attractive museum

At Oban War & Peace Museum I learned about the peaceful history of this beautiful port, but and about its life in the World War II, when here it was an important naval and air military base.

Helpful and knowledgeable staff. Some children arrived to find information for a school project and the staff were really good with them. Helping when necessary but not taking over. We all learned from the experience. Video was informative and just the right length of running time. We were allowed to take photographs for our VE party and picked up a few tips for food and costumes
