A great museum. Plenty to see, and discover about the man. You get access to the gardens and his house too in the admission price. Lovely!

Small SNT property. Didn't know much about Hugh Miller so found it quite interesting. The "garden" was a bit of a let down - a few strides and that's it. Good to while away an hour or so.
