About Fintry Museum

Fintry Museum Society created the Museum in 2021 to share the village’s great story with locals and the world.

How It Began

The first idea was simply to place display interpretation boards at key points around Fintry.  It seemed a good idea to place a copy of these indoors in one place.

This grew rapidly into a building concept (a portacabin was the first thought!). Then the Sports Club offered ground space for a real building.  Fund-raising of around £100,000 was almost all obtained within the community.

The project became much more than planned!  Building was complex, historical research extensive, design of boards exciting, paper archival work enormous, artefacts more than we expected. Voluntary help was an essential tool.

We hope to return to the idea of interpretation boards around the village.

This is a community space.  It is a social area and a place to learn about pride in our astonishing community. There will be talks and meetings and events. Pop-up exhibitions will happen. Archaeological digs and new discoveries are yet to be made!

The Edmond Connection

The Museum is also known as The Edmond Gallery in tribute to the longest direct line of one family.  Hugh Edmond, born in Fintry in 1938, can trace back his family continuously in the village since the 1500s. 


Fintry Museum was created with the help of many people through time, skills, donations and voluntary work. Thank you to those named here and to many others.
