Museum Exhibition: "The Living Room"

The Isle of Barra heritage centre is called Dualchas a Gaelic word meaning "derived from ancestors".

Dualchas has two main galleries with changing displays of local history, art exhibitions and other events.

The historical collections reflect living in Barra throughout different times and the landscape of the Islands.

"The Living Room" is a display which represents the changes in home life on Barra, from a thatched dwelling with a peat fire in the centre to a formal 1940's home.
Recorded voices speaking Gaelic mingled the sound of pipe and accordion music stimulate the imagination helping this journey into the past.

There is also a cafe with a wide selection of home baking and light meals.
