Extended opening hours 27th November 2022

John Muir’s Birthplace be open until 6pm on Sunday 27th November to make sure we don’t miss any of the Dunbar Christmas lights magic!

We’ll be providing a warm and welcoming space on the High Street for you to have a wee bit of shelter from the cold and the crowds. Sarah Wakefield’s Leaves of Auchencraw exhibition will be open in our temporary exhibition space along with free drop-in craft activities. If you can’t get enough of the crafts, we have a children’s reading den and even more crafts on the top floor.

If you’re looking to do some Christmas shopping we’ve got you covered too – our shop is full of gifts from local makers and artists such as Wylliecat Design, Chain Bridge Honey, LesleyMay Miller (published with Black Agnes Press and Red Squirrel Press), and many more! Many of the exhibition pieces on display are also available to buy. Our shelves are stocked with a lovely selection of books that cover a wide range of local history, nature writing, and climate justice. As part of our ongoing Green Tourism commitment we source as locally as we can wherever possible.
