“Robert Louis Stevenson Museum”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

the museum is set in beautiful grounds, everything has been restored and its very atmospheric. You can see original copies of his work, where he and his family lived and spent his last years. It is almost like a shrine. He was clearly loved by the local community.

“Great Guide made a great experience”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was my second visit to the museum the first time was so-so you just walked around the house and had a look at stuff on the walls. This time we were guided by Margaret who made the whole experience worthwhile. She was so knowledgable and passionate it made an amazing difference in comparison to the first visit. She even sang for us. Unfortunately it was not recommended we climb up the mountain but hopefully the trail will become passable again soon. I woud totally recommend waiting around for Margaret to be your tour guide, she was amazing. Well worth the $20SAT. I would also recommend having some small change when you go to the gift shop, nearly all of us in our group had $50 notes so it was hard for the cashiers to make up change.
