We have been busy over the winter making sure that the museum building is no longer suffering from a perilous issue: dry rot!
Extensive works have taken place in the museums galleries and offices, fortunately we were finished in time to open this season. Unfortunately this has come at a huge cost to the museum. We will be campaigning to try and recoup some of this to ensure we can keep running in the future!
We are working on this years offering; an exhibition that will explore the impact that World war one had on the people of Strathspey,
2018 marks the Centenary of the end of the First World War, a landmark anniversary for Britain and the world. Strathspey & The Great War explores the role and impact of the conflict on the lives and families of the local community through the fascinating reportage of the local newspaper, The Strathy.
With so many loved ones far away, news was incredibly important to people at home. Newspapers became a lifeline, reporting what was happening politically, informing families of losses and publishing extracts of letters from the front. From the intriguing story of the mossgathers, to reports home from the Front, The Strathy was not only a reporter but an instigator, interrogator, encourager, an opinion giver and agent provocateur.
We have been working with local people to bring some of their family stories and personal objects to the light.
