Eyemouth Museum


Auld Kirk Manse Road, Eyemouth, Berwickshire, TD14 5JE

    Eyemouth Museum is based in Auld Kirk building in the centre of the town and traces the area’s fishing and social heritage.

    The history of Eyemouth is brought to life at the museum through a series of exhibits and stories from local people. It houses a unique tapestry created to commemorate the centenary of the Great East Coast Fishing Disaster of 1881, also known as Black Friday, when the community suffered the loss of 189 local fishermen at sea. The tapestry took two years to complete and was hand crafted by 24 local Eyemouth women.


    There are lots of fun things for the Children including a junior quiz for under 8s, hunt the fish, dressing up clothes, guess the objects cabinet, colouring sheets and a reading corner. The whole family can also explore the family trail.

    The museum is also on the ground floor and fully accessible for the less abled.


    The museum also houses a gallery, which has a regular programme of temporary exhibitions, a well stocked gift shop, art gallery and a VisitScotland Visitor Information Centre.
