Up Helly Aa Exhibition

During the summer months the Galley Shed is used to host the Up Helly Aa Exhibition. The Exhibition contains information on the history of Up Helly Aa with many photographs documenting the event. The Jarl Squad suits for the previous 10 years are on display along with various other suits used by squads participating in the festival.

There is a short film documenting the preparations and celebrations from Up Helly Aa of January that year. It provides an overview of the festival from start to finish providing an opportunity to raise many questions whilst viewing the exhibition.
