Festival of Museums success

MORE than 150 people braved the rain and came along to Kinneil Museum in Bo’ness tonight to join in the “Night at Kinneil Museum”. They met Romans, saw part of a new film about the Antonine Wall, enjoyed music from UNISON Kinneil Band – and were treated to a history walk in the surrounding Kinneil Estate. The evening was organised as part of the Festival of Museums and Museums at Night initiatives.

A big thank to everyone who came along – plus the helpers who gave up their Friday night to make this community-backed initiative such a success. The evening was organised by The Friends of Kinneil charity with the support of Falkirk Community Trust – and funding from Museums Galleries Scotland.

Everyone who visited the Museum was offered a free goodie bag to take home. The good news is that there are still some bags left to claim. Pop into Kinneil Museum on Saturday from 12.30 p.m. and 4 p.m. to claim yours. They’re free of charge.
