The Eyemouth Museum follows the area’s fishing and social heritage through a series of exhibits and stories from local people. It houses the famous Eyemouth Tapestry that commemorates the Great East Coast Fishing Disaster of 1881, also known as Black Friday, when 129 local fisherman lost their lives at sea. It was handcrafted by 24 local women, took 2 years to finish and is made up of nearly 1,000,000 stitches.
The Museum Shop offers a wide range of gifts from souvenirs, locally made craft items, traditional gifts, books and chocolate. All the proceeds go towards the museum, helping it to be self-sustaining.
