The Wick Heritage Centre

The Wick Heritage Museum is located in the heart of the Thomas Telford designed Pulteneytown. Situated in premises that were once home to a number of businesses and families in Bank Row, the somewhat rambling building is something of an 'Aladdin's Cave'.

As you enter the building a team of dedicated volunteer guides, each one with their own historical knowledge, await to explain the room upon room that displays the many aspects of life during the heyday of the herring fishing.

While an obvious aim of the Heritage Museum is to collect, collate and display the many artefacts that tell the history of Wick, the ethos is one of welcome and sharing.

A small selection of Scottish provincial silver is held here.

Opening hours: Open from Easter until the end of October - Monday to Saturday 10.00 - 17.00

Admission: U/K
