This museum was a very pleasant surprise. It doesn't look that impressive from the outside, but it is such a treasure of a museum on the inside. Beautiful antiques and amazing photographs!I especially loved how all the volunteers that work there are so proud of their heritage.

Easy to spend a good couple of hours in this little museum.... actually not so little. Think Dr Who's tardis - it just keeps going!

An excellent museum with a library of photos from the turn of the last century along with many other exhibits. Very knowledgeable staff.

a lot of work has gone into making this probably one of the best heritage museums around this area. A series of rooms in a row of old cottages lead you through life of the town as it used to be. Vast numbers of the artefacts are displayed up in relevant and realistic settings

If you like looking at things - this place has it all. Nearly 30 interconnecting rooms with different displays linked to the history of Wick (herring) and the region. Artefacts range from fishing memorabilia to the former lighthouse and the inside of houses from a time gone by. Leave yourself plenty of time to browse all that is on display.

So much to look at we ran out of time. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Cost very little to visit and the outside is very deceptive as it looks like a mid terrace cottage and actually spreads over 3 properties. The light and workings from Ness Lighthouse re-sited in the museum was very interesting and the Johnson photos... More

A great insight into the history and culture of Wick. The guides were attentive, and informative, and the photograph collection alone was worth the visit. An excellent resource for those researching the area.

Thank you for such a worthy visit to your museum. Our trip was well liked by our children on a very wet day. You managed to keep them interested in looking and finding out and researching in your museum all day. Well done for such a little museum. highly Recommended very friendly staff. Thank you

A veritable Tardis of a museum! From a modest entrance it goes on and on and encapsulates all aspects of life in Wick throughout the past. Magnificent photographic collection, but boats, coopering yard, full lighthouse light, kitchens, living rooms, school rooms, agricultural implements, full newspaper equipment, just a veritable Alladin's Cave of interest. Could stay all day! A must on... More
