East Lothian Council’s heritage hub in Haddington!

With Haddington’s branch library on the ground floor, and a 5-star museum with permanent and temporary exhibition galleries and the East Lothian Archives and Local History Centre upstairs, there’s plenty to see and do here. There is free wi-fi, public access computers and a bookable meeting room, and we also have regular activities and events – check our What’s On page.

We have a multitude of treasures in the collections and on display – and you can book a group visit to come and see them! Call 01620 820 680 to book a tour.
