Wick Heritage Centre
The Wick Heritage Centre houses a number of furnished rooms portraying past times.Each room contains an array of authentic household furnishings, ranging from a traditional box bed to authentic Caithness chairs. Beyond the museum we have our garden and the Isabella Fortuna, both of which offer an incredible look back into the past.
Since 1971, the Wick Society has striven to protect and promote Wick's history. Today the Wick Society has under its wing the Heritage Centre, Isabella Fortuna, Johnston Collection, and Wick Voices - a oral history project. Please come along and view our displays for an amazing look back into the past of this historic town.
The Museum's first displays opened to the public in 1981 and they have continued to expand in terms of subject and content as items were either loaned or gifted. Significant work is being done to negotiate the status of many exhibits from on loan into ownership of the Society. This is one of the key requirements of the accreditation application process of the Scottish Museums Council, a body that The Wick Society continues to work closely with to ensure it meets the necessary criteria.
