Institution of Civil Engineers Museum Scotland

Welcome to the Institution of Civil Engineers Museum Scotland website.

The museum is home to a collection of just over 400 items relating to civil engineering many of which have strong local connections including a number of items relating to the Forth Bridges.

The collection is owned by the Scotland Region of the Institution of Civil Engineers and under an agreement between the Region and the Heriot-Watt University the collection is deposited with the University on loan.

The museum is located at Heriot-Watt University's Riccarton Campus where most of the items are on display in cabinets in the east crush area of Level 1 of the William Arrol Building and other larger items are placed at other locations both inside and at the west end of the William Arrol Building.

Anyone wishing to view the collection are most welcome to visit the University during normal weekday hours.

If you wish to visit or have any items you would like to donate to the collection please contact Professor Roland Paxton (R.A.Paxton@hw.ac.uk), Professor David McGuigan (icescotmuseum@virginmedia.com) or Derek Chambers (icemuseum100@gmail.com)
