sharing and celebrating Maryhill's dynamic history. 

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust is committed to collecting and making accessible the history of the Burgh Halls and Maryhill area. After 6 years of public events and building up the Trust’s heritage collections, the Trust aims to take the next step in sharing local history by establishing the Maryhill Museum. The museum will be a place to share our local history collection and offer opportunities for community displays. Maryhill Museum will advance local access to facilities in arts, heritage and culture and engage with the local and wider community to safeguard and celebrate Maryhill's history.

We’re open weekdays 10am - 4pm, with special openings announced on Facebook. The Maryhill museum is run largely on volunteers and we appreciate any donations made.
