Kilmartin Museum re-opens the doors to over 12,000 years of history<br />
 <br />
One of the key attractions in Argyll and Bute, Kilmartin Museum re-opens following a period of vital redevelopment work. A custodian of the artefacts that come from Kilmartin Glen, one of Scotland’s richest prehistoric landscapes, the Museum houses a collection with a Nationally Significant status, offering visitors of all ages a fascinating insight into the lives of our ancestors inhabiting the area over the last 12,000 years. The artefacts on display include the remains of a Bronze Age woman found in Kilmartin Glen, displayed alongside a reconstruction of her face, allowing visitors to look into the eyes of their ancestor and the Poltalloch jet necklace – a piece of internationally important Bronze Age jewellery from the Glen.
