Through the By the Seaside exhibition at the Scottish Fisheries Museum we aim to explore the many ways the sea influences our lives, rekindles childhood nostalgia and connects us with nature. The exhibition will also focus on the role the sea plays in emotional, mental and physical well-being, and the ocean as a muse.

By the Seaside focuses on the topic of "blue space"—the impacts of the sea and other water sources on mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. The exhibition forms part of the Scottish Fisheries Museum's programme for the Year of Coasts and Waters 2021.

The seaside has a long association with rejuvenation and wellbeing, from Medieval seawater spas to the Victorian belief in sea-bathing and sea air as a cure for ill health. After a period of neglect, many people are now rediscovering, through personal experience and contemporary scientific research, the health benefits of spending time near, on, or in water.
