Musselburgh railway station is a railway station serving the town of Musselburgh, East Lothian near Edinburgh in Scotland. It was opened in 1988 and is located on the East Coast Main Line and is served by the North Berwick Line, 5¼ miles (8 km) east of Edinburgh Waverley. It is located near the recently built campus of the Queen Margaret University.

A station of the same name was opened by North British Railway in July 1847 and was located not on the main line but alongside the River Esk. That station serviced the Edinburgh & Dalkeith line to Fisherrow but was closed to passenger services in 1964 and goods services in 1970.
