The museum is located in center of the small town of South Queensferry. Entry is free and there are four rooms documenting the military history of the area, the Forth Road bridges and the town itself. Not much for kids to do but great if you are interested in military, engineering or local history.

Our first visit here but what an interesting little museum, full of local history...and it's free. In the same building is housed the registrars office - a beautiful little room with stunning views!

The museum which is located at South Queensferry gives an interesting insight view into the naval past of the area, village life through history and the story of its famous bridges. It is not big but worth the visit if you fancy the naval history.

Dropped in during the Easter holidays for a quick look around as was surprised by the amount of history packed into the museum. I've also been interested in local history & particularly where I live so this was a genuine feast on local insights! I'll definitely be back to soak up some more knowledge and enjoy views over the Forth... More

The museum was brilliantly laid out, with friendly and kind staff. The museum was suitable for all ages and showed a great deal of history to do with Queensferry!

This museum is a quick visit but helps with perspective on the background of the community. There is a super view of the Firth of Forth and there was an extremely cool table on display - you will wish you could take it home. The museum is very, very easy to overlook- I had walked by it on previous trips... More
