This workshop can focus on either WWI or WWII and is adapted to your school. If former pupils or soldiers commemorated on your local war memorial were Argylls we can offer a chance to find original sources in our archive and explore what life was like for soldiers who served from your area.

Visiting Us

Please note access to The Argylls Museum can be challenging for some. We are based at the top square of Stirling Castle which is situated on a steep incline with cobble stones throughout. The Colours Room, where workshops are held, is at the top of 3 flights of spiral stairs. The museum also has quite a few internal stairs so please make us aware of any physical access concerns before booking a workshop.

Can’t visit us? Our handling boxes mean we can bring the Museum to you too.
