Calling all history lovers! Have you ever wanted to learn more about Glasgow’s Shipbuilding heritage? Well then, look no further than the Fairfield Heritage. This fantastic museum acts as a celebration of the Govan area of the city and its role in Glasgow’s world-famous Shipbuilding industry. The building where the museum is housed was once the home of Industry giants, The Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Company LTD. Which helped revolutionise the industry in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The museum has regular events throughout the year, becoming an important centre for community activities and all sorts of events. The facility also provides tours, which are in-depth and go into great detail on the area, for two hours a week at peak times. Interestingly, Fairfield Heritage also has a “Family History” department. This is where volunteers help others research their family history and deal with many visitors from overseas. So, what are you waiting for? Make the most of your day off and experience Govan like never before, at Fairfield Heritage!
