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.

Visited while on holiday in the area. Small but very interesting museum, stuffed full of all sorts of exhibits, both local and further afield. Great displays of militaria and taxidermy. Free to enter but a pot for donations. Worth a visit.
