Linlithgow MSP Welcomes Official Opening of new Linlithgow Museum

Local Linlithgow Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop, has welcomed the opening of Linlithgow Museum, which can now be found at the Linlithgow Partnership Centre on the High Street. The museum used to be located in Annett House.

Linlithgow Heritage Trust (LHT) received a grant of £240,000 from The National Lottery for the “A New Museum for Royal Linlithgow” project which aimed to enable community involvement in the development, delivery and interpretation of heritage.

Fiona said,

“I am delighted to see that the new Museum for Linlithgow has officially opened. This free attraction, located in the heart of Linlithgow allows local people to find out more about the history and heritage of their town.

“The museum features three new galleries and a bespoke flexible Community Space, showcasing the Trust’s collection of objects and photographs. There is also a range of family friendly activities available such as art workshops and even a community archaeology dig.

“Linlithgow is rich in culture and history and it attracts visitors from all over Scotland. I am certain this new museum will receive much attraction from local people and from our national and international visitors as they come to learn more about the important part that Linlithgow has played in our history.”
