This is not a museum, but a celebration of the competitive life of Jim Clark. There is lots of interesting information about his racing career, and memorabilia, especially trophies, fill the main room. There is a good video shown of his racing life, which came to a sad end, at the height of his racing career. There are plans about... More

Although this is a very small museum it is packed with information about Jim Clark and his life. There are several informative videos of his races.

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
