Queensferry Museum

The Queensferry Museum is housed in a building that was originally the Viewforth Temperance Hotel, that was built in 1900. During part of World War Two, it was used as the Norwegian Naval Command (Port Edgar) and eventually became the Council Chambers of the Royal Burgh of Queensferry.

The museum showcases the past and the traditions of Queensferry and Dalmeny. The displays focus on The Forth Rail and Road Bridges, local trade & industry, the ferry passage to Fife and local customs and traditions.

Children can enjoy the hands-on activities, including using the telescope to explore the Forth. The museum sells a small selection of postcards.
