The archives will be re-opening from the 6th September 2023.  Our new opening hours are as follows:

Wednesday- Thursday 10:00-12:30, 13:30-16:00.  Please note that access is by appointment only. We require proof of address and photographic ID to register.  We also require researchers to book their visits at least 3 days in advance, to allow us time to prepare the records for viewing.

Please contact us at if you would like to book an appointment.

When you email us to book your visit, we will ask you to fill in a registration form which includes listing the records you would like to see during your visit.

Falkirk Archives is located in the oak-paneled Victorian library of Callendar House, and is the place to come to find out about the history of Falkirk district or to start your family history research. Local archives and photographs are held here, and may be viewed by the public. Most aspects of local life are covered, from valuation and electoral rolls to old newspapers, from school records to town council minutes, from foundry catalogues to church bazaar programmes, and all sorts of things in between.

The Archive is open free of charge to all researchers. A small charge for photocopying is made, and copies of photographs are for sale. Telephone, email, and letter enquiries may also be made, (although extensive research is chargeable and depends on available staff and resources) and staff will always be on hand during opening hours to help you in your search.

Please note: Some archives are held offsite and three days advance notice is required for access to these records. They include building warrant plans, planning applications and some financial records. They are identified in the relevant finding aids. We regret that we cannot accept credit card payments under £5 for copies of material being purchased from the archive.
