Given evolving public health considerations, the Fairfield Heritage team have had to take the difficult decision to postpone public access to the Fairfield Heritage visitor centre for the first part of this year, we will review this at the end of July 2021 and hope to be open soon after.

The Exhibitions Team

As part of the exhibitions team you will help us select material for the exhibitions based around the four core themes:


  1. Fairfield and Govan
  2. Fairfield and her People
  3. Fairfield and the story of shipbuilding
  4. Fairfield and the World


We hope to create exhibitions that truly represent people’s interests. To do this we need guidance from members of the public so whether you have time to give on a regular basis or can only spare a few hours just once, we would value your input and feedback as we gather material for the permanent displays.

Unfortunately due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus and in consultation with our team of volunteers, we have decided to close Fairfield Heritage until further notice. We have also postponed our walking tour and evening talk on 25th March. Please keep check back for updates!

Between the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the heyday of shipbuilding on the Clyde, Govan was at the centre of the industry.

Whatever your age or experience we can offer a range of learning opportunities. From education groups to community visits.

We are looking for volunteers. To find out more about the huge variety of opportunities to support us, go to Get Involved in the Heritage site.

Once described as the jewel in the crown of Govan, the restored building provides a magnificent venue for all for all kinds of events.
