The Wee Museum of Newhaven

The Wee Museum of Newhaven at Victoria Primary School is now open and you can see the new exhibition ‘Newhaven Stories’.                                                                                              kippersKippering 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.                                                                                                                         weemuseum

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
