It's FREE and there is a lot to see. Housed in an old building adjacent to the beach where all the local Registrar weddings are held.

We stopped here as part of our Forth Bridges tour and thoroughly enjoyed the information on display. The history of the original bridge construction and the photographs and our guide's narrative were all very interesting and gave us a greater appreciation for what was accomplished under trying conditions. A bonus was encountering a wedding party all decked out in their... More

This is a quirky little museum above the local registrars office (where a couple got married while we were there ) Interesting local history including lots about the Forth Bridge. Admission is free. The exhibit is currently housed in four rooms but a notice says improvements are being made...

The museum may appear to be small, but the rich history of Queensferry is well documented and nicely presented. I found the historical representation of the war and that of the bridge engaging!

We came across this museum by accident following an aborted visit to Hopetoun House (It was closed for the winter). It is in a building housing the Registrars office and we had to ring the bell to be admitted. First of all we had a look at the wedding area and what a wonderful backdrop for a wedding it is...

We were directed to this museum by some locals and were glad they pointed it out. Our two young grandkids, 5 and 7, especially enjoyed Burry Man. Lots of interesting info about the town and the history.

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
