The Coastal Communities Museum in North Berwick features interesting displays on 10,000 years of local history. Each year, a new exhibition is introduced with a range of interesting displays and things to do to suit all visitors.
Come and visit our fascinating local museum located in the seaside town of North Berwick. We’re run entirely by enthusiastic volunteers and our aim is to enable locals and visitors to explore the culture and heritage of the coastal communities that make up East Lothian’s North Berwick coastal ward – North Berwick, Dirleton, Gullane, Aberlady and Whitekirk plus the smaller inland hamlets. It’s free to enter (donations appreciated), you’ll get a warm friendly welcome and there’s lots to discover for all ages. The museum incorporates artefacts and heritage from the town, the surrounding villages and landscape relating to 10,000 years of history.
We first opened in 2013 and each year we introduce a special theme to refresh the permanent display, including a raft of family-friendly activities suitable for visitors of all ages – from pre-school to pensioners – and with a variety of interests.
Open from April to November Wednesday – Saturday.
