Home > Learning > Community Groups

For groups and community learning we offer an exciting and diverse range of facilitated and self-led activities for all stages and abilities.

What can we learn about at the museum?

The Scottish fishing industry and its associated crafts, people, environment, culture and towns are not only an important part of Scotland’s history but also of its present and future, making them relevant topics for community groups of all ages.

Along with the fishing industry you can also learn about boatbuilding, weather and navigation, safety at sea, architecture and the marine environment, giving access to science, social history, economics, technology, art and design, craft, geography and languages - creating a contemporary and inspiring learning resource.

Activities for children - early years up to 16 years old

All of our schools activities and resources are also suitable for community groups. Please see our Early years, Primary school and Secondary school pages for more information, along with our resources page. Booking information can be found on our planning a visit page.

Activities for adult groups

Please see our Adult and Higher Education page for information on suitable activities for adult groups, along with our news and events pages.

Our handling boxes are an especially good resource for reminiscence sessions for older groups. These can either be used at the museum after a guided tour, or you can borrow them to carry out your own reminiscence session. Please see our resources page for more information.
