Stumbled upon this when we were doing an overnight stay in Creetown on the way home from Ireland. Very interesting local museum, wide variety of things with plenty of photos. The chap on the door was heplful and friendly. Entry was by donation. We were in there about three quarters of an hour. Also local Tourist information leaflets available including a leaflet for the Creetown Trail and locals walks. Would recommend.

Visited the museum during our recent holiday. Very surprised about how interesting it was this was partly due to the man on reception giving us a guided tour, which made everything more relevant.

A visit is a must for anyone touring the area.

I visited the museum with my young nephew whilst the schools were off and we spent some happy time inside this excellent museum and information centre.
There is just so much to see and read inside, all painstakingly put together by locals and volunteers. The museum is organised into sections filled with real life testimonials, photos, letters, equipment and recordings - I personally was so interested in all of the old letters and photographs particularly in the WW2 section.
Such a great space to visit, conveniently close to the A75 and the Gem Rock museum - it’s a total no-brainer to swing by and take a look. Recommended.

visited here this week, and we were not disappointed.such a variety of exhibits, from local history and plenty of photographs.video.It was a blast from the past, as I recognised things from my childhood, very friendly, small entry charge. Also which is nice, you can handle such a lot of the exhibits, nothing roped off,well worth a visit.We were in about an hour.

If visiting Creetown both this and the Gem rock are worth a visit. Old photos and memories of the past put together by a great bunch of volunteers who are just happy to talk about everything. Very small charge to enter.

This is a great little museum, full of fascinating artefacts and exhibits on the history of the area. Very friendly and knowledgeable volunteer staff. Will appeal to young and old alike. Lovely to be able to touch books and other exhibits.
We have visited before and will definitely be back.

A fantastic collection of artefacts, photographs and documents illustrating the vibrant, close knit community of Creetown and the surrounding area in times past. I have family links with Creetown and the experience was quite emotional, but there is plenty of interest here for everyone and all ages. The staff are enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. Well worth the modest charge to step through the door. You can immediately tell that a lot of thought and effort has gone into this project. Wonderful!
