The Stewartry Museum was founded in 1879, and first occupied part of the Kirkcudbright Town Hall. 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.

A lovely little museum which really punches above its diminutive size. The pirate themed treasure hunt was well thought out. Entry is free (a donation appreciated) and the staff always lovely :)

It is great as a visitor to Galloway that each area has its own museum and this one at Kirkcudbright has its own indivisual aspect that sets it aside from the others. As well as seeing medieval and Roman items in the glass cases you...More

Lovely little museum with lots to grab your interest. Lots of varied items have been gifted to the museum, and the background behind them is fascinating.

A quirky museum. A lovely place that I have visited many times. They have new displays from time to time and make an effort to put special things on for children to do. It's a good place to do local studies research, and family history,
