Having an interest in Our Poor Queen, I found this place offered an insight into how she may have spent some of her leisure time. You could easily miss the building but itmis worth searching out. I found the small garden particularly peaceful and there is atree that Our Godd Queen is supposed to have planted?

A free visit to a museum dedicated to Mary Queen of Scots. Well presented on several floors, and the 50p audio tour is also helpful. For disabled visitors who cannot manage the circular staircases there is a 'virtual' tour available on a computer screen.

Lots of information about Mary Queen of Scots and old rooms with artefacts and her death mask. Helpful staff and a shop. Nice garden grounds to wander round close to the town centre.

We arrived at this lovely old house about an hour before closing time and were welcomed warmly. The house has an fascinating history and although the link to Mary Queen of Scots is a little tenuous, the material on show is well-displayed and informative. The staircases to the upper floors are narrow, steep and winding and with low doorways tall... More

Gorgeous old property housing a very interesting exhibition on Mary Queen of Scots. Took about three quarters of an hour to go round although a audio description is available which would propably have lasted longer. The title is a little misleading as Mary only stayed in Jedburgh for one month. However, i would definitely recommend a visit if you are... More

It was great for free as no admission price although there is a donation box. Although the information on her life was OK I got the impression the link to Jedburgh was quite tenuous. 4 weeks really isn't that long. So I wasn't overwhelmed but this museum.

This little house was full of interesting pictures, paintings, artifacts and information about Mary Queen of Scots. You can spend an hour looking around the place and it is a free attraction. Well worth a visit,
