  • An excellent and educational visitor attraction. Good interactive displays and interesting video. Covering 3 floors with lift access. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable they were readily available if required but also aware of visitors who wished to view on their own. A great experience of interest to all aged. Recommended.
  • We spent a good time here learning about John Muir and the history of his family. We've used the John Muir way at various points, but I didn't understand why he was so important and the work he'd done in his lifetime.
  • A lovely little museum and it's free!
  • So informative and Always there to help anyone
  • Great little museum about one of Scotland's greatest sons. I know so much more about him now.
