Oban War and Peace MuseumOban War & Peace Museum contains a fascinating collection of artefacts and photographs depicting the rich cultural history of the busy port town and its people. You can learn about the fishing and maritime industries, the railway, road transport, local sports, the building of the iconic McCaig’s Tower and the strategic role played by Oban during the war years when the town was home to Australian, Canadian and US aircrew and RAF Flying Boats operated from the bay.

The museum is run by a team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers and relies on visitor donations to cover all its overhead costs. There is something of interest for all ages and youngsters can participate in our quiz. We hope you will come and visit us soon to find out about Oban’s heritage.
