Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre

COVID-19 Status Report – Wednesday 6 January.

Taigh Chearsabhagh (excluding the cafe) is open each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10.00am – 3.00pm. We will review our opening times at the end of January.

Thank you.

Our primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors to the museum and arts centre, as well as work to help protect our islands community from the further spread of Covid-19. If there is any deterioration in the current situation on the Western Isles, we will not hesitate to close Taigh Chearsabhagh fully if required.

Robust social distancing measures are in place throughout our building. We ask all customers and visitors to respect and follow strictly our safety procedures, as well as the advice of our staff. All Taigh Chearsabhagh personnel are temperature-checked daily.

Taigh Chearsabhagh thanks all the community for their continued support and asks everyone to keep safe and follow appropriate measures during these challenging times.

Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a hub for people to meet, share ideas, learn new skills and experience exhibitions and events that are imaginative and stimulating.

The island location and environment are very important to the work we do, the place, the Gaelic language, culture and heritage are part of our identity.

We have regular visual art, moving image and heritage exhibitions, we have live music events, art classes for children and adults, writers groups and events and a new Education & Outreach programme.

Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a partnership between Comann Eachdraidh Uibhist a Tuath and the Uist Art Association. The two voluntary organisations formed Taigh Chearsabhagh Trust in 1993 and over several years have created a thriving museum and arts centre that has much to offer to visitors and the local community.

Located in Lochmaddy, the main port of entry to North Uist, Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is located on the shoreline of a marine Special Area of Conservation. The sea and sky directly influence the artistic and cultural life of Taigh Chearsabhagh.

Inspired by our unique island location we have a vibrant and stimulating exhibition, event and outreach programme going on throughout the year at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
