The John Gray Centre brings together East Lothian Council’s Archaeology, Museum, Archive and Local History Services, alongside Haddington’s branch library. The Centre is the result of a long-standing commitment by the Council to inspire the people of East Lothian to explore and engage with the history of their communities, environment and families by enhancing and further developing East Lothian Council’s heritage services

In the Centre and on this website you can explore East Lothian’s heritage, find resources to help you at school or with research, and browse through our images and maps. Search our catalogues and online map using the search box above (the Library catalogue can be searched here), or help us by sharing your own stories, whether they’re family lore or local tales.

The project was funded by East Lothian Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and Historic Scotland and opened in March 2012, gaining a 5 star grading from VisitScotland shortly thereafter. The museum also has official accreditation from Museums Galleries Scotland and Arts Council England.
