This is a small but well presented museum showing the history of the area. Part of the museum houses the Camera Obscura which I would recommend. The Museum entrance if free but there is a small charge for the Camera Obscura. I think we paid £3 each but you do get a member of staff with you to explain how... 更多

Climbed the hill up to the museum where i was greeted at the desk by a lady with a lovely, bubbly personality."

There is an extra charge for the Camera Obscura but admission to the museum is free and well worth a visit. We took our two young grandchildren (aged 2 and 4) and they had a great time, looking at the many different exhibits - stuffed animals, ancient tools and machinery, clothes that people used to wear, grandfather clocks etc.etc. There... 更多

There are also different textile items to look at, including information about spinning, weaving and knitting and a Local History section... 更多
I've given this museum five stars for the camera obscura alone. The museum itself is worth exploring, and when we went there were school groups there - it was great to see it being visited.

There is too much to see in the rest of the museum for one visit. There is a wide variety of interesting subjects on... 更多
We visited on a cold winters day and after wandering round looking at the history and artefacts we enjoyed an ice cream. The curator even allowed us to sit and watch a virtual tour of Robert Burns house.
This museum is excellent as it covers a great deal of local history, nature and industry. There are great views of the surrounding area. It has a camera obscura which is amazing and has to be seen to be believed.
