Easdale Island Folk Museum
The museum is on Easdale Island near Oban, on the West Coast of Scotland. It has displays on a variety of topics from education, army volunteers, the slate industry, boats and public health.
The museum was set up in 1980 by the owner of the island at the time, Chris Nicholson. The original curator was Jean Adams, who was a direct descendent of a slate quarrier’s family. Jean, along with the help of other local residents and families, collected and arranged the displays of artefacts. She retired in 2006, after twenty-five years of service. The award winning museum is now owned by Eilean Eisdeal, the Easdale Island Community Development Group.
There is a craft area that sells locally handmade crafts, including knitwear, cards, wooden furniture and preserves.
