We are delighted to open a brand new temporary exhibition in our museum’s Jubilee Room.

SAGA! Viking Tales is a display of embroideries inspired by the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry, created in Iceland to tell the 9th century story of Aud the Deep-Minded and her travels from Norway to Scotland to Iceland. The beautiful panels are supported by a further embroidery from the Norway set of the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry, and two digital paintings created by the late Andrew Hillhouse. Younger visitors can also step aboard our very own Viking longship, and there is information about Viking links with East Lothian.

We are planning some great activities and events to support the exhibition in the new year, so look out for more news on our Facebook page!
