The Wee Museum of Newhaven at Victoria Primary School is now open and you can see the new exhibition ‘Newhaven Stories’. Kippering yard, 1921
The exhibition was curated by children from Victoria Primary School. They were assisted by members of the local community, who shared their memories of Newhaven in the past and by Museums & Galleries Edinburgh. Many of the objects belong to the museums but some have been kindly donated by the local community. The exhibition explores three themes: Newhaven in Wartime, Fishing and Schooldays.
The Wee Museum of Newhaven is at Victoria Primary School, Newhaven Main St, Edinburgh EH6 4HY. You can visit the museum by appointment. Please phone the school on 0131 476 7306 to book.
The exhibition was developed as a part of the Memories Project and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
