  • They have something for everyone there are lots of different things in the museum from many animals and farming equipment to bells and clothing there are several cup and ring stones 
  • Nice lady behind the desk allowed us to bring our little well behaved dog in if we carried her. Spent an interesting time looking at the broad variety of exhibits. Some nice references to the history ...  more »
  • Huge selection of artifacts and the staff are very friendly and eager to engage all. It's not 21st century with fancy electronics, it's a good old fashioned collection

  • Some good artifact but sadly misrepresents the truth about people like John Paul Jones who at his best could be described as a pirate.
  • A very interesting place loads of exibits and your free to wander at your leisure. Well worth watching the dvd on the link it has loads of info on the surrounding area. Its free entry and a good rainy day activity
