Oban War Peace Museum: A collection of artefacts and photographs about the fishing and maritime industries, the railways, road transport, and the strategic role played by Oban during the war years when the town was home to Australian, Canadian and US aircrew and RAF Flying Boats operated from the bay. The involvement of local men and women in WWII is also recalled as are the other Services who operated in the area at that time. Local sports such as Shinty are featured and displays tell the story of the first transatlantic telephone cable link, the operations of the Northern Lighthouse Board, local emergency services, the construction of McCaig's Tower and the history of the museum itself.
