-SPAN- A Tale of Three Bridges, an exhibition which mixes stunning historic images with family-friendly hands-on fun.

This childrens exhibition will tell the stories of the Forth Rail Bridge, the Forth Road Bridge and the new Queensferry Crossing. You can learn about the bold Victorians who risked their lives to create the magnificent rail bridge – a wonder of the age. What about the ‘spider men’ of the road bridge – how did they gain that nickname? And how close did we come to having a tunnel under the Forth, rather than the new crossing?

All the family can get hands-on too, with lots of interactive fun. There is a giant snakes and ladders game, a sea monster magnetic mix-up, a massive jigsaw, dressing up and quizzes. Everything will be bridge-themed and will therefore inspire any budding engineers in the family.




Tuesdays to Thursdays 11am - 4.30pm

and Saturdays 1 pm - 4.30pm.

Admission Free

 In December 2007 Friends of Methil Heritage received support from the Scottish Government-funded Digital Resources Development Team for their SCANIT project.
With a grant to buy equipment, and after specialised training, 7 dedicated Friends scanned almost 2000 photographs from the Heritage Centre's collection.
Now, anyone looking for a particular image can browse "thumbnail" versions in print and visitors can enjoy a continuous slide show of images of the area. The original photos are kept safe for the future while high quality electronic images will soon be accessible to all.
