Visited on a number of occasions and I have always been impressed with the owner/curator's enthusiasm and the eclectic mix of Ayrshire history that he has assembled. It is definitely worth a visit, lovely setting, good little cafeteria and great for a day out.

An astonishing restoration project. The mill, left to rack and ruin, was brought back to life by a couple's dedication. Plenty to see over three floors. Costumes from various eras are interesting (how petite women were in the 1800s!) while the story of farming in...More

If it's The Museum of Ayrshire Country Life and Costume at Dalgarven Mill you want to visit, I think we paid £4.50 per adult, sorry I don't know the price for children. Hope this is of help. We really enjoyed our visit and... More
