Queensferry Museum helps visitors to explore the past and traditions of historic Queensferry and neighbouring Dalmeny.
You can learn about the construction of the Forth Rail and Road Bridges before viewing the real thing through our picture windows that look over the Forth. A telescope helps you to get a closer look at the Bridges and our local wildlife. The Forth (Rail) Bridge has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Displays on local customs, the ferry passage and trades and businesses are full of fascinating objects and photographs. You can even come face-to-face with the Burry Man, a unique Queensferry tradition.
