Over the last few months, the Leith Museum campaign has been working with a group of experts who have been working up proposals for how Custom House in Commercial Street could become the location of our planned Museum. Work is still going on, but we expect to be publishing and presenting a report in the next few weeks.
What is very encouraging is the more work we have done, the more that Custom House seems to be a practical and realistic possibility. There is still a way to go, and of course we have to get the agreement of National Museums of Scotland who currently own the building, but I honestly believe we are nearer to getting a museum in Leith than ever before.
News about our report will be put up on this website when we have more details.
