Chambers Institute, High Street, Peebles, Tweeddale, EH45 8AG

    Explore this broad collection of objects and learn about the area’s fascinating history at the Tweeddale Museum in Peebles.

    The Chambers Institution is a complex of buildings which were gifted to the people of Peebles in 1859 by William Chambers, one of the founders of the famous publishing house.

    The museum and gallery found within these historic buildings features displays of contemporary art and local history, in addition to a lively programme of exhibitions throughout the year.

    The Chambers Room, accessed through the library, houses the extraordinary plasterwork friezes commissioned by William Chambers for the building and also features exhibitions on the history of Peebles and the surrounding area.
