  • A wonderful and interesting place, with an exact 1940s house with furs and hats to dress up in. This is said to be the most haunted place in Scotland. Well with a visit, wonderful volunteers, and the museum area has some of the porcelain red poppies. There's a real sadness about the place, but its a great place to visit.
  • Had an amazing day with kids staff very nice also with kids great day out prices very good will defo be back highly recommend thanks
  • Very interesting. Not huge but a lot of various exhibits. Well worth a visit.
