Eyemouth Museum, Eyemouth

4.1
#3 of 17 in Museums in Scottish Borders
Eyemouth Museum is based in the centre of the town and documents the fishing and social heritage of Eyemouth, brought to life in its exhibits and through stories from local people. Central to the museum is the famous Eyemouth Tapestry that commemorates the Great East Coast Fishing Disaster of 1881, known as Black Friday, when 129 Eyemouth men lost their lives at sea. The tapestry was hand crafted by 24 local women and took 2 years to complete and is truly a sight to behold. As a museum, tourist information centre exhibition gallery and gift shop, we're sure you'll find more than one reason to visit Eyemouth Museum.

  • Lovely little museum for such a small village. Interesting facts about Eyemouth and local history.
  • Shop Review only. Only had time for a quick nose around. Lots of local information and local art available. Upstairs is predominantly children's books, However there are a selection of local walking/cycling guides.
  • Thought it would be bigger,and bit disappointed to be honest
  • Small but enjoyable.
  • Interesting local history.
