Wandering through this wonderful little gem and admission free, how wonderful is that. The house told the 'forgotten story' of Mary and the death mask was utterly beautiful. A really wonderful town and place to visit.

Really enjoyable, interesting portrayal of the history. Steep stairs may no be for all though, and another free attraction.

A very interesting and informative way of passing a couple of hours. Admission is Free with a small charge for an audio guide. The house has several flights of steep stairs so is not suitable for all. But is well worth a visit if you are able.

It was great to revisit the life of Mary. The audio guide is most informative. This museum is free and well worth a visit if in Jedburgh.

Plenty of interesting information on the life of Mary Queen of Scots. Lots of stairs (don't think there was a lift) - may be a problem for some people. Lovely building, great to explore. Free admission.
