Work is well under way although with the inevitable hiccups and delays, on the repair and restoration programme at the A1 listed Thomas Telford church building that houses the museum. Regular updates and photographs on progress are being published in the Ullapool News and on our Facebook site.
We are closed during our restoration works and apologise for any inconvenience.
Our temporary museum exhibition space is open 11am to 1pm, Monday to Friday which is housed in the portacabin across the road from the museum building.
Here we have our genealogy resources and a brief outline of the history of Ullapool and a detailed exhibition of the 'Saving Thomas Telford' project. This exhibit explains the reasons for the repair and restoration work - penetrating damp, leaking roof, decaying windows, falling plaster ... and shows the actions being taken to remedy the situation. This work is only possible due to the substantial funding and support from Historic Scotland, Heritage Lottery Fund, Highland Council, Fargher Noble Trust, and the people and businesses of Lochbroom. We are particularly grateful to Ullapool Harbour Trust for lending us the portacabin for the period of the work.
We are also making regular use of our exhibition trailer, the Museum Machine, and other venues where available and appropriate.
