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 established the Maryhill Museum, as a place to exhibit our shared heritage. The museum is a place to share our local history collection and offer opportunities for community displays. Maryhill Museum hopes to 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 monday-wednesdays and fridays 10am - 5pm, and thursdays 10am - 3.30pm. Special evening openings are announced on Facebook.
The Maryhill museum is run largely on volunteers and we appreciate any donations made. We provide BSL interpretation if requested in good time - read the accessibility guide to Maryhill Burgh Halls here.
We need your help
Located in the Maryhill Burgh Halls, the museum will preserve the memories of the local community in Maryhill and offer events for all. We are looking to build a dedicated museum space to continue the activities that the Museum has done well in the past, as well as present even more ways to engage local residents.
To support this, we need to raise 5% of the total costs of the project to be eligible for further funding. The project includes designing, building, staffing, and a 3 year community engagement program. Without your help this will be impossible.
Help us support the preservation of our local heritage by donating and sharing through the JustGiving link on the right!
