Prestongrange offers audio tours, guided tours and visits to the Beam Engine and Powerhouse.
Children can take a trail sheet around the site and play in the children's area indoors where there are toys, books and games.
When sunny weather hits, dive into our outdoor games basket and see what you can find!
During the summer season, we offer many summer activities and have an annual family activity day.
The Powerhouse houses temporary exhibitions too!

It may be worth checking out Prestongrange Museum's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Prestongrange Museum before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

"are we there yet?"
Prestongrange is located on the coast road between Musselburgh and Prestonpans, on the John Muir Way coastal path, just eight miles from central Edinburgh.
It is served by buses (Lothian buses #26) in both directions and there is a stop just outside the museum. Car parking is available on site.
...got any top tips?
Prestongrange welcomes dogs as there is ample outside space for dog walking. Although the Visitor Centre is indoors the main site is outside. On cold or rainy days please bring wellies and scarves! On sunny days, why not bring your own picnic to have on the bank where you can see Fife on clear days. Many families like to cycle and the John Muir coastal path is across the road from the museum, why not stop in for some refreshments and a rest!
