A veritable tardis of a museum! What a smashing introduction to daily life in this wonderful herring capital of the world. If you haven't seen this museum, you ain't seen Scotland.

Very knowledgeable staff who helped us find out more about family history. Lots of really interesting items. We didn't have time to see it all so will go again when next in Wick.

Very helpful staff with a great deal of the usual 'museum knowledge'; but also a wide range of local knowledge which helped to identify my family within the town. Link this to the collection of photographs where I believe I found one of my G Grandfather in his youth and it made a terrific start to my search.

The volunteer staff are... More

This museum was a pleasant surprise and run by dedicated volunteers.The museum is much larger than appears from outside with a lovely terraced garden at the rear. There is lots and lots of town and district history to be seen here. A must visit if in town.

Last time I was here it was closed but I'm glad I visited again. This is a very good museum about a town with lots of History including farming, fishing and distilling. Great Photos and other visual exhibits. The cooperage and lighthouse are particularly worth the visit. Have you seen the inner workings of a a lighthouse without having to... More

This is a wonderful museum run by volunteers. It gives a history of Wick and has innumerable exhibits from the local community. Of particular interest is the collection of photographs taken by 3 generations of the same family, Very worth a visit
