Whiskers and Whispers

31 October 2021 10:10 - 31 October 2021

A spooky trail for the October holidays

at the Scottish Fisheries Museum

9th to 31st October 2021

“Be careful as you climb the stairs, I swear I saw a mouse sat there…”

As the days get shorter and the shadows longer, the museum buildings come to life in a different way…

Listen carefully and you may hear the footsteps of fishermen long gone, the creepy creakings of soot-blackened rafters and the hurried scurries of shy little creatures as they disappear into dark corners, eager to escape the beady eyes of Kipper the Cat!

Can you help our feline friend track down the 10 mischievous mice hiding in the galleries?

FREE with museum admission

Please book online or drop by to see if we have entry times available.
