Today is the history of tomorrow.

All of the items in our collection have been donated or loaned by local people or their relatives and we hope that, together, we have covered many of the important aspects of Dalkeith’s past.

If you can help by donating or loaning other items which are connected to Dalkeith, please get in touch.

Our collection depends on you to find treasures that will transport our visitors to times gone by so they can learn how their ancestors in Dalkeith lived and worked.

Thank you everyone.
