Highly professional museum relative to the size of Fraserburgh. Captures all of the historical events and themes of the town. Hands-on exhibits for the kids. Good resource centre/library with historical records.

Obviously it's very much about Fraserburgh, it's people, industries and history and is a place to visit for both adults and children. Definitely a place to spend time, especially if the weather is bad. The staff there were welcoming, attentive and very helpful

Fraserburgh is not on any guide I know about but it’s well worth the trip. The Heritage Center and Lighthouse are wonderful finds. You’ll spend 4 hours and wish you had more time.
