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

This is a beautifully kept museum with lots of interesting things to see. Very informative staff and information leaflets were plentiful. Also lovely, well kept, gardens to spend a little while in.

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,

Interesting period house, exhibits well done with explanations of both the history of Mary Queen of Scots, but of the house and area as well. Staff friendly, willing to answer questions.

We have passed through Jedburgh many times on route home, but decided to call. There is a free car park a short walk from the house. The House has free entry, and is worth visiting to read all about the history of Mary Queen of Scots. Really worth a visit if you are passing.

Free entry to this historic home. Brimming at the seems with information and facts to walk you through the lifeline and history behind the home. Not massive so we were in and out in about 20 mins.

During her stay she stayed at this old house which is thought to have been owned by the Kerr family of Ferniehirst Castle to the south of the town. The great house is now a free to see museum under the auspices of... More

We stumbled upon this place & another free attraction, so would recommend paying a visit. For children you can 'find the moles' which they enjoyed. I found it fascinating reading all about Mary queen of scots & seeing the artifacts. There is the option to pay for an audio tour if you want to, we only spent about 20-30 mins... More
