As the collection grew, the present purpose-built museum was planned and opened in 1893. The Museum has an old-world charm and exhibits a wealth of objects relating to the area known as The Stewartry of Kirkcudbrightshire.

Visited this museum and was very impressed it was very interesting and held so much memorabilia. Certainly worth a visit if in Kirkcudbright.

A sweet little museum with a ecclectic mixture of artefacts. I liked the displays showing the history of the area and also the artefacts relating to the industry of the area. I wasn't so keen on all the stuffed animals.
A lot of the exhibits have been donated to the museum by people in the area. A pleasant way to pass an hour. Entry is free.

A lovely museum showing a good variety of local life and history, but what I really liked was a polite and can-do attitude to my questions. It was humbling that nothing was too much trouble for them.
