We could enjoy a view of bridges through the telescope and learn about the history of the construction and the town.

This was a little gem of information. It is in the local council offices, but don't let that put you off, just press the bell and you will be instructed to go up the stairs where you will find out so many facts about the area, the Forth Bridge and the locals.

A small, free museum on the first floor of the council offices, spread over four rooms. It provides an interesting array of information and artefacts regarding the local area and the construction of the Forth bridges. The views of the Forth from the first floor windows are impressive and are enhanced with their powerful telescope.

A small museum but well worth a visit even if its for the views from the back of the building alone. Very interesting with lots of information and photos about the building of the famous brdiges. Alos lots of local history and the not to be missed famous 'Burryman!' Free entry, the museum is situated upstairs within the Registrars office

We did not realise there was a local history museum in South Queensferry but managed to find it on the main cobbled street within the local Registrars Office. Small but worth a visit to have a better understanding of the local history and the famous bridges.

visited with my family, including a train obsessed 8 yr old and was not disappointed. Popped in on our way to Perth and found this friendly little museum could answer quite a lot of my lads 'why and how' questions! The burry man is a must!

we went with our tour guide from Two bridges tour and had an informative look at artefacts inside this lovely cosy wee museum. Warm welcome form the chap at the desk and an enjoyable look at the mine of information and a really good view of the Bridges and island

Walking along the High Street, the Museum is tucked away in the Council Offices on the First Floor. I emphasise this as if you have mobility problems then this is not really an attraction for you. However it covers the local life in Queensferry, including the Burry Man, and some good photos, and great views across the River. Could do... More
