The Institution of Civil Engineers Scotland Museum is home to a collection of over 500 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 (ICE) and under an agreement between the Region and Heriot-Watt University the collection is deposited with the University on loan.

The museum is located at Heriot-Watt University’s Edinburgh Campus at Riccarton 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.
