Campbeltown Museum occupies a sizeable room in an A-listed building which also houses the local public library. The initiative to establish a library and museum was came in 1896 from the Kintyre Scientific Association, today still active as the Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society. It was the generous response from Mr James Macalister Hall, a wealthy retired businessman, which turned the dream into reality. The well-known Glasgow architect J.J. Burnet designed the building and in 1899 Campbeltonians were able to boast their own Free Library and Museum.
