Coming Home: WWI in the Highlands

Start: Monday 26 March, 10.00am - End: Sunday 30 September 2018, 5.00pm

Discover the fascinating stories held in Highland museums and archives in this touring exhibition. Commemorating the end of the First World War in the Highlands, the exhibition includes work and animations produced by the pupils of Bun-sgiol Shleite (Sleat Primary School), Skye. Find out more about the team behind the exhibition in our news post.

From March to August, alongside the pupils’ work we feature an exhibition produced by Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre: ‘An Cogadh Mòr: Remembering the Great War in Skye and Lochalsh’.

In September we feature a special touring show from High Life Highland – Impact, Memories, Lasting Legacies.  Artists Cat Meighan, Henry Cruickshank and Robyn Woolston worked with communities and museums across the Highlands to create the exhibition. Their visual artworks, animations and a mini mobile museum reveal poignant individual stories and the impact on local society across the Highlands. Visitors of all ages can explore a suitcase of activities and resources, and create a memorial flower for our memory wall.

The project was previously on show at Inverness Museum & Art Gallery and is touring Highland museums in 2018-19. It was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) made possible by National Lottery players through HLF’s First World War Then and Now programme.  It is a collaboration with High Life Highland and the Highland Museums Forum.

Open daily. Entrance included in ticket to Castle, Gardens & Museum.
