  • Excellent interactive activities for children. Most unlike museum visits i experienced as a child. Children are actively encouraged to engage/learn through interaction. Very enjoyable/ informative and met with a lovely warm welcome from museum staff.
  • Wonderful time at the University museum today. Interesting for children and adults alike with lots of interactive activities, thank you.
  • A relatively small selection of artifacts, considering the school's original collection. Interesting nonetheless.
  • Quite a small museum but interesting! Nice balcony with great views of the sea.
  • A small gem in St.Andrews, very nice and interesting. It's good also for kids since they can experiment with some small puzzle games, music, drawings, etc.

Where to stay in St. Andrews

less expensive lodging and luxury rental apartments are located around the town center and the university buildings. Be sure to book accommodations overlooking the sea and St. Andrew Cathedral ruins early, because they fill up fast during the good weather months. Rental properties in the town center on narrow streets, such as Market Street, are within walking distance of the main architectural and cultural attractions. Save money by renting a room farther west of the town center. These are residential neighborhoods that are well-connected to the town center but offer quiet nights and inexpensive nightly rates.
