You might think that a locally developed heritage centre in a small village in the middle of nowhere wouldn't have much to offer. Well, you'd be wrong as the displays are really well organized, and the welcome from the staff - all of whom are...More

Right next to the Carriages cafe so convenient to do both. Very small museum focussed on the local Borders history. Amazed to discover my family connection to the Border Reivers, which was fascinating.

The chap in this centre was absolutely charming and enthusiastic about this lovely historic museum and welcomed us all. Everyone helping there were pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Very interesting account of local history in lovely surroundings.

The museum is quite small and the prices quite high which losers it a star. It is well presented but I think anyone would be pressed to spend as much as an hour inside.
