This attraction brings home to people just how much the town and surroundings have contributed to the world in general. It demonstrates the contributions various Fraserburgh people have made. Well worth the visit

This centre is really bustling with interesting features about the history and people of the local area. Apart from the exhibition itself there is a fascinating section dealing with wartime history and local families. Staff very welcoming. Do go if you are in the area

Decent enough centre. Kids loved it. Children can interact with some parts of it and get a slightly better insight to how things were in the past. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
