Our museum has recently relocated to the Civic Centre, 148 Main St, in Huntly.

We have limited exhibition space in our new home, and are therefore restricted to offering museum visitors small temporary displays while we plan and redesign our new space. Guided tours are not available during this time.

However, Research Services will continue to be provided and the museum will retain an active online presence while we unpack and organise the museum’s contents, as well as continue caring for and completing full documentation of the collection. We also have a great range of local history booklets, books, CDs, and DVDs for sale.

We are open Mondays to Fridays, from 12.30pm – 4.00pm.
