Oban War & Peace Museum

The museum contains an interesting collection of artefacts and photographs, showing the history of the busy port town and its people. Learn about the fishing and maritime industries, road transport and the railway.

Find out about how Oban played a strategic role during the war years, when the town was home to Australian, Canadian and U.S aircrew. The involvement of the local men and women in WWII is also remembered.

There are displays telling the story of the first transatlantic telephone cable line, the construction of McCaig’s Tower and about the museum itself, plus a feature on the local sport, Shinty.
