Object Detail

Name/title notes
Falkirk Museums was first established by Falkirk Town Council as Falkirk Burgh Museum in 1926. It went into abeyance in the 1960s and then was re-established in 1972. After local government re-organisation a service was established for the whole district with museums at Falkirk (1975), Kinneil (1977) and Grangemouth (1979) and Museum Stores in Grangemouth (1978?). In 1994 Falkirk Museum was re-located to Callendar House. In 1996 the remit was formally extended to include the archives service for Falkirk Council.

Archaeology has been a function of Falkirk Museums since the 1950s. Doreen Hunter, Curator of Falkirk Museums in the 1950s and early 1960s was an archaeologist and undertook some excavations while running Falkirk Museums. The post of archaeologist and keeper of local history was established in the late 1970s.
