When we arrived in Jedburgh, didnt even know that this House existed, Had learned a little about Mary during our wanders through Scotland, but everything and more came into place after visiting the House. Dont expect anything big, but it is floor after floor of interesting and informative displays. Good to see that the house is free, and give yourself... More

Tucked away in a side street in Jedburgh town centre this really is a gem of an attraction. I had limited knowledge about Mary until this visit but there is a goldmine of information available in the house. Access to each floor is by a stone staircase with rooms holding all kinds of information, and it does paint a very... More

Very interesting with audio or just reading the information posts around the museum. It wasn't too big and was very clean and the lady on the counter was very pleasant and helpful.

Really enjoyed our visit to this museum. It is set in lovely grounds and we actually bought a sandwich and came back to sit in the grounds for lunch as it was so lovely and was such a beautiful day. The museum is really informative and really brings to life the scandals and political intrigue of that time in history... More

Do not get carried away by the Name as it is a misnomer ad Mary Queen of Scotts stayed only a very short period here. But that does not diminish importance of this place as her history is well documented and exhibited here. The building is at three levels with winding stairs and may be a little difficult for elderly... More
