The Nairn Museum collection was started in 1858 by Dr. John Grigor with the donation of a rattlesnake from "The American Settlement" by Miss Grant of Larkfield.

The collection grew and was housed in the public hall on the High Street before being moved to Viewfield House after World War II.

In 2000, the Viewfield and Fishertown collections joined to give the unique array of artefacts and memorabilia which tell the stories of the Adventurers, Farmers and Fisherfolk, Tradesmen and "Notables" who helped in various ways to shape the history of the Royal burgh and the County of Nairnshire.
