Museum of Islay Life

We went to the Museum of Islay Life on Tuesday 18th January. Primary 6 and 7 came with us. After that we went to the waterworks at Torra.
We got on the bus and went to Port Mor. We met Mr Reavey. He told us what the oldest house on Islay was. Then we went to the museum. When we got inside it had lots of tools and dresses with beds. My favourite exhibit was a wheel chair because they got to push old people on it. The wheel chair had a steering wheel and a rug on top of the seat. The rug was made at the Islay Woolen Mill during World War 2.
Then we went to the waterworks at Torra. Two people showed us around. They told us about how the water gets cleaned. First it was brown, then it was white, then it got really clear.
I liked going to the museum as it had lots of cool things inside. The water works had lots of pipes with water going through them and was really interesting.
