  • Pop in if it is open and you will be richly rewarded! Time capsule of St Andrews past, artistically arranged, interesting exhibits bring history to life. 
  • The Preservation Trust Museum deals with, as the name implies, to preserve the historical heritage of the city, also meant as instruments, lifestyle, products and everything so he was part of the daily life of the past. I find this point is excellent, interesting and curious ... too bad this little Museum is unable to be fully up to par. Basically consists of some small rooms in which they played some venues that have been part of everyday life, or the grocery store and pharmacy. I found the second well made but essential ... maybe a little too much. Period instruments in view and comprehensive captions about some things, but not for others, many green and empty bottles but originally had definitely contained something, but what? And the great wall in drawers for the uninitiated is meaningless, why not explain overall. The first was very pretty to behold (remembered very precisely set Donald Duck cartoons, those around the years ' 50) but no explanation. I really wanted to know where they came from products and brands on display on the shelves, what, because they were "famous" between people, instead I saw nothing but yet another display of which I couldn't understand anything. On the back there is a small garden with herbs, and shed another tiny exposure with some information but again, poor. For my part, pay it a visit doesn't cost anything – admission is free-but I wasn't excited despite the conditions were good. Has a lot of potential to be a Museum of great interest, but I fear that the Preservation Trust is necessary to revise many things to make that happen. Too bad.
