  • You do need a good hour to see everything. The lady who worked there was very knowledgeable and helpful, If you can, go outside and up the steps, there are anchors and a good view of the harbour.

  • Superb museum detailing the history of the various aspects of life in the area. The Herring fishing industry made Wick the greatest in the world, and with it subsidiary industries like rope + net making. A record 24 million fish was gutted by 3,000 women on 23/8/1864, which averages at 10 fish per minute for each female worker. Other areas of interest are Caithness Glass, other Maritime aspects, and agriculture.
  • Absolutely wonderful museum managed by lovely people. An absolute must stop for those who are driving the NC500. The museum provides so much history about the way of life in Wick, which gives the NC500 experience a lot more depth and understanding of the place you are driving through.
