EXHIBITION AT THE COASTAL COMMUNITIES MUSEUM IN NORTH BERWICK

NEW EXHIBITION OPENS.

This year’s exhibition opens on Friday 30th March 2018.  New features include the story of pilgrim routes through East Lothian and across the Forth and a section dealing with the development of the landscape from volcanoes to the present day.  The Robert Louis Stevenson display with its attached play area for children remains as does the story of the coming of the railway.  One room is devoted to the end of WW I in 1918.  The school, laundry and chemist’s shop exhibits have been much improved.

There is plenty to occupy the minds of all ages.  Why not make a point this summer of visiting the museum, above the Library in School Road in North Berwick.  Bring your families and friends too.
