Taken over more than a century by three generations of the Johnston family, the Caithness photographers presents the Johnston Collection representing the life and times of Wick and the surrounding area, today held in trust by the Wick Society, you can see formal portraits and captured images of life in and around the area between 1863 and 1975 with many street scenes, even today they are remarkably sharp, these are fascinating images to see.

If you're interested in how people lived and worked, the history of the fishing industry, the lighthouse light, after walking round the museum you really feel you have an understanding of the local place and community.

The originally museum was one house but toady there are 6 properties that have been merged, so it’s sometimes hard to see where one ends and the next begins, the individual rooms are furnished to give a sense of 19th century life, using the back yards of the house's, has been merged and enclosed to fit two fishing boats into it, complete with masts and sails and an entire lighthouse light dominates another space, placed here when the lighthouse it lived in was replaced by an automatic beacon in a space between two houses beyond the museum is the garden, here you will find an amazing look back into the past of this historic town, the garden is designed around the flagstone courtyard, thereby preserving the typical stone built Caithness structures and has been used on several occasions by newly-weds as a background for wedding photographs.

Today, visitors can rest on a unique flagstone bench, donated to the Museum in memory of its long serving Chairman, Donald Sinclair.

  • Open from Easter until the end of October
