Aros started out as a wet weather visitor centre with an audio visual museum and honest value restaurant. It promised a cultural experience and promoted the Islands history end in particular gaelic heritage. Expanded considerably in 1998 to include a first class theatre/cinema it continued to offer something for All tastes. Today it still offers good theatre, a modern and somewhat unique small cinema, opportunity to learn about the sea eagle in conjunction with the RSPB and a fast food restaurant offering good value. The heritage aspect of the original venture has been now completely taken over by a commercial need to sell through its shop a variety of gifts and greetings cards, clothes, kitchen ware. It is not what it was but has had to adapt to survive in a competitive tourist environment. Book fairs are annually held, ad are music workshops.
