Fodor's Review

Next to the Shetland Museum, the bold and beautiful—although somewhat brutalist round the back—Mareel is Shetland's newest and most adventurous arts center. It has a live performance space attracting national and international musicians, two cinemas showing art-house and mainstream films, and a café and bar area that showcases local crafts, acoustic musicians, and some very drinkable Shetland beers.
