Lovely atmospheric view down Moodie Street with the museum in the foreground. Wonder who the family visiting the cottage are?

A view from close to home this week as we take a look down the hill to Moodie Street. Here's a really nice undated image that includes so many lovely details - the old streetlights, the car, a taste of fashion and, if you look very closely, a view right down to the Forth Bridge.

Already it is time for the museum to close our doors for the winter season. We shall still be hosting events (get your tickets for the Winter Festival events later this week). https://www.tuttievents.com/

Schools, groups and researchers can all still access our resources, give us a call with your requests.

In the winter we do some deep cleaning of the building, check the displayed objects, move some things around and general maintenance, we don't eat mince pies all day!

We recently received this incredible film donated to us by volunteer Tan Lay.

We are hugely grateful for all the volunteers who support our work, some in ways people see, others are soldiering away doing tasks that are very important to the museum but might not be seen immediately.

We wish all our visitors, friends, volunteers and partners a Merry Christmas and prosperous new year.
