This museum is a quick visit but helps with perspective on the background of the community. There is a super view of the Firth of Forth and there was an extremely cool table on display - you will wish you could take it home. The museum is very, very easy to overlook- I had walked by it on previous trips... More

This was a little gem of information. It is in the local council offices, but don't let that put you off, just press the bell and you will be instructed to go up the stairs where you will find out so many facts about the area, the Forth Bridge and the locals.

A small, free museum on the first floor of the council offices, spread over four rooms. It provides an interesting array of information and artefacts regarding the local area and the construction of the Forth bridges. The views of the Forth from the first floor windows are impressive and are enhanced with their powerful telescope.

A small museum but well worth a visit even if its for the views from the back of the building alone. Very interesting with lots of information and photos about the building of the famous brdiges. Alos lots of local history and the not to be missed famous 'Burryman!' Free entry, the museum is situated upstairs within the Registrars office

We did not realise there was a local history museum in South Queensferry but managed to find it on the main cobbled street within the local Registrars Office. Small but worth a visit to have a better understanding of the local history and the famous bridges.
