Heritage Services Exhibitions

We create temporary exhibitions to give our communities access to a variety of aspects of their history and culture. Our temporary exhibition programme runs in the Community Museums at  Armadale Library, Blackridge Library, Broxburn Library and Whitburn Library alongside the permanent displays. We also send travelling exhibitions to libraries and other venues throughout the community.

Reminiscence Centre

The Council's Museum's Service is currently supporting the Living Memory Association to run a Reminiscence Centre from the former Hush shop at The Centre, Livingston.

The centre is full of objects and bric-a-brac from a bygone era including gramophones, costume and packaging. We also have a range of exhibitions and comfy seats where you can sit down and have a blether.

The Centre is open Wednesdays, 11am - 3.30pm.

We can also open specially for group visits at other times of the week. Contact Emma Peattie on 01506 28652 to arrange your visit.

Museums Assistant, Maureen Liddell, talks about the centre in the video below.
