Linlithgow Museum

Mary, Queen of Scots, the Battle of Linlithgow Bridge, the world’s first assassination of a Head of State by firearm: there’s a lot to discover in Linlithgow’s new museum which opened at Easter 2019. Its three galleries will help you explore Linlithgow’s royal connections, understand its industrial past and learn what ‘Life by the Loch’ was really like. Visitors can also enjoy our Community Space where they can listen to interviews with local people and watch animations created by local schoolchildren.
