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. The next three years will be an extraordinary time, as we grow our excellent community engagement record and undertake one of the largest projects in our history: creating a permanent museum at Maryhill Burgh Halls. The museum will be a place to share our local history collection and offer opportunities for community displays. We hope to advance local access to arts, heritage and culture and engage with the local and wider community to safeguard and celebrate our shared history.

We’re open monday-wednesdays and fridays 10am - 5pm, and thursdays 10am - 3.30pm. Special evening openings are announced on Facebook.

We provide BSL interpretation if requested in good time - read the accessibility guide to Maryhill Burgh Halls here.
