Caithness Horizons Museum welcomes half a million visitors
Published 12 Aug 2015Tuesday 11th August saw local group No Limits Caithness visit the Museum for a morning packed with Viking activities with Curator Joanne Howdle, or Thordis Eiríksdóttir as she is fondly known to local groups and schools.
The group helped the Museum to hit the half million visitors mark and to celebrate they were presented with a special cake made in the Museum’s cafe.
The 2015 summer season has been excellent for the Museum, welcoming visitors from all over the world to experience all that Caithness has to offer. A passenger from the Saga Pearl 2 cruise ship who visited Caithness Horizons last weekend remarked that it was the best Museum that she had visited.
As well as welcoming holiday makers, the Museum has run some successful workshops over the school holidays with Neil Redgate from the Society of Biology and local artist Hazel Cashmore. The Hazel Cashmore exhibition is on display in the Gallery until 30th August.
On Saturday 15th August the Museum is celebrating local talent with a Craft Market and is expecting a busy weekend with the arrival of the Adonia cruise ship.
Caithness Horizons would like to thank all of its visitors for their continued support over the last six years and we look forward to reaching many more milestones.
