PRESERVING ISLAY’S HISTORY – CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN
The Museum of Islay Life is delighted to launch a crowdfunding campaign that aims to secure the rich history and cultural heritage of our island. The Museum has been a treasure trove of knowledge, showcasing the island’s past for many years.
Now, however, we need your support to extend the current storage facilities to allow us to preserve even more of Islay’s fascinating history for decades to come.
