AboutTaigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a place where people can meet, share ideas, learn new skills and experience cultural interpretation that is imaginative and stimulating. The island location and environment are key factors in making this aim come to life.
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 centre for heritage and contemporary art 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 on the shoreline of a marine Special Area of Conservation. The sea and sky dominate in a western Atlantic environment that directly influences the artistic and cultural life of Taigh Chearsabhagh. Inspired by the unique island location there is a vibrant and stimulating exhibition, education and outreach programme going on throughout the year at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
It also fulfills a vital local need as the local Post Office and has a superb café with excellent homemade fare and WiFi!
