04 December 2017Free Entry to Lottery Ticket Holders on Saturday 16th December

Stromness Museum offers free entry to Lottery ticket holders

Stromness Museum will be throwing open its doors for free to National Lottery players on Saturday 16th December. They are joining 350 National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK in saying ‘Thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

This year Stromness Museum received £9,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for their ‘Listening to the Piers’ project.  The project’s exhibition, telling the stories of Stromness piers, is currently running at the museum. 

The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard on Saturday 16th December gains free entry.  Kathleen Ireland, Chair of Stromness Museum said: “It’s a way of giving back to people who have contributed to our Lottery funded projects over the years.  By having free entry on a Saturday, we hope that families can take advantage of the offer.  We can guarantee an interesting and educational day out for all ages, so why not take a break from the Christmas shopping and pop along to the museum with your lottery ticket.”   Stromness Museum winter opening hours are: 11am-3.30pm Monday to Saturday.
