The “A New Museum for Royal Linlithgow” project aims to enable community involvement in the development, delivery and interpretation of heritage and provide opportunities for local people to find out about the history of Linlithgow.
The new Linlithgow Museum opened its doors to the public in Spring 2019.This project relocates Annet House Museum to its new home in the Linlithgow Partnership Centre, Tam Dalyell House.
The Partnership Centre is home to a host of local services such as a Library, Customer Information Services, Local History Library, Family History Society, Police Scotland and Linlithgow & District Community Day Care Centre.
The museum will feature three new galleries and a bespoke Community Space.
Together these will provide a fresh interpretation of the town's history and showcase the Trust's rich collection of objects, photographs, and archive material. Participation and engagement will be placed at the heart of our new community centred museum.
Volunteers from across the area will develop a range of heritage-based skills, whilst local people will have a chance to take part in exciting activities from art workshops to a community archaeology dig.
The National Lottery are the largest funder of the funder of the project having awarded the Linlithgow Heritage Trust a £240,000 grant.
Other funders include LEADER, West Lothian Council, Linlithgow Town Centre Management Group, Museums Galleries Scotland The Land Trust, EB Scotland, Viridor, Robertson Trust, Levenseat Trust and the Association of Independent Museums.
