As you'll be aware the Museum has moved out of Annet House 😪 but we have moved into the Partnership Centre and are preparing to reopen in 2019 😁. The move has also meant the name of the museum is being changed to Linlithgow Museum and to reflect this we have created a new page Linlithgow Museum. That is where we will now be posting updates for the project as well as events and activities when we reopen. Please pop across to see some photos from the community archaeology weekend and to like our new page!

Over the last couple of weeks some of you might have seen a lot of busy people and large vans outside the Museum. We have been moving the objects to the Museum's new home in the Partnership Centre, taking them for conservation or returning loans to the National Museums Scotland. Its been very exciting and a lot of work! We'll be posting pictures of the move over the next couple weeks but our first task was to return the plough to the National Museums Scotland.
