Visited this museum after our trip to the inchcolm island last week, it’s a hidden museum which is just a stone’s throw away from the Maid of the Forth ferry. It’s a must visit museum if you visiting Queensferry to find some very interesting facts about the bridges. Cables and rivets used to construct the bridges were also in display... More

It's easy to miss this museum but please search for it as there's lot of great stuff about the Forth Bridge and the town's history including a full size Burry Man. It's in the council chamber.

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!
