Visisted this little museum late in the afternoon, found it interesting, especially the Burry Man. It has 4 section I only got through 2 before closing. I will definately be back to see the rest, helpful and informative staff and its free to visit.

Popped in here early in June 2017 and we are so glad we did. Lots of really interesting exhibits very well presented. Documents the history of South Queensferry very well.

Worthwhile popping in if visiting South Queensferry. But with very limited opening times ,which are cut further if a wedding is taking place in the same small building, not worth a special trip to visit.
