East Lothian Museum Service Headquarters
Library & Museums Headquarters
The Service came into existence in 1990 with the appointment of the first Museums Officer. However, a museum had been run in North Berwick by the District Council since 1975. We support Prestongrange Museum and Dunbar Town House.
Collections that are not on display are held in our environmentally-controlled store at the Museums Service Headquarters in Haddington. While this is not open to the public, appointments can be arranged to view specific objects upon request.
In addition, the Service supports activities by community groups across East Lothian and puts on exhibitions and events.
Not open to the public. Access by appointment
