Amazing Museum and cannot wait for the new additions in 2018. Finally visited with my partner (who is a non F1 fan) and we both loved it. I am the F1 fan and truly loved the whole set-up, lovely staff and so much information, trophies, photographs, stories and films clips. The DVD which plays in the second room lasts 1... More

I have been wanting to visit the Jim Clark Room for years, but never been in that part of the country. This is a very personal museum, which is a must for anyone interested in the sport, or who appreciates sporting greats. It is only small, and it is worthwhile taking time to read the history and look at the... More

I have been meaning to visit this museum for years but for various reasons never quite making it, a very personal museum and well worth the trip. There are plans for expansion which will only make it better. Lots of trophies and details of Jim Clarks life and untimely death in a minor formula 2 race. If you have any... More

Confession time: I have no interest in Formula One. In my opinion, it's one of the dullest forms of motorsport. However, as a general sport enthusiast, I am aware of Jim Clark and his achievements. Passing close to Duns, I decided to visit the Memorial Room - and am extremely glad I did. With exhibits set out in two rooms,... More

This is a great museum in the lovely town of Duns. The well set out building documents the history of one of the greatest all round racing drivers of all time. His Lotus Cortina exploits are legendary, and the museum offers many publications on his life for sale.The trophies on display are incredible, even down to one which Jim won... More

How good it is to see an exhibition so close to where the person lived, even if it is rather off the tourist track. For someone who is not a great fan of formula one I found the displays and video very interesting . Jim Clark was a different kind of celebrity who is listed as a farmer as well... More

For anyone who enjoys Motor racing this is a must see museum, full of information about the late Jim Clark what an amazing driver. From the early days right the way through his career, cups and silver ware all beautifully looked after. Currently being refurbished.

Have been before but a long time ago so could not remember much about it. Glad we again. Its a small but very informative. It traced Jim Clark's career in motor racing in detail with lots of pictures and his trophies that he had won. Very enjoyable.

The Jim Clark story laid out in front of your eyes, so many trophies, so much information, the one hour dvd presentation is well worth sitting through ! Only thing that's missing is a car but that will be rectified by 2018, if you want to learn about one of the greatest (if not the greatest) this is a must... More
