The new Linlithgow Museum opened its doors to the public in Spring 2019.

The museum features three new galleries and a bespoke Community Space. Together these will provide a fresh interpretation of the town's history and showcase the Trust's rich collection of objects, photographs, and archive material.

Participation and engagement will be placed at the heart of our new community centred museum. Volunteers from across the area will develop a range of heritage-based skills, whilst local people will have a chance to take part in exciting activities from art workshops to a community archaeology dig.

GALLERY 1 - CIVIC LIFE
Learn about civic life in Linlithgow and celebrate the town's rich royal heritage. This gallery features our stunning Mary, Queen of Scots statue, which was the first life-size statue of her to be commissioned in Scotland.

GALLERY 2 - A WORKING TOWN
Discover our trades and industries including dyeing, explosives, pharmaceuticals and electronics. Kids (and adults) will love the hands on interactives which include make your own medicine, design your own banner, and even a smelling interactive.

GALLERY 3 - LINLITHGOW LIFE
In this gallery visitors can learn about the Linlithgow Marches, sports and leisure, politics, education and so much more. Key objects include Tam Dalyell's typewriter, our Waldie digital interactive and the hugely impressive Scotch Brigade banners.

COMMUNITY ROOM
Our flexible space for workshops, talks and film screenings is available for use by local groups. It is currently featuring a display of historic costumed dolls, and an exhibition curated by local primary school children about their personal heritage.
