My husband loved this museum - very interesting telling how the lighthouse was built with brilliant diagrams and artifacts. Lots of information on the lighthouse and Signal Tower. Spent a good 45 minutes in there and its free :)

Its free, its local, its really informative but for older people I feel. The history is great, but there is little to do for younger children. Once they can read and understand, then fine, but under 9 and it would be quite boring I think.

Great wee museum, staff very helpful, and patient with children. Plenty to see and learn, free entry and well worth a visit. I would love it to have a coffee shop!!

A very nice little museum which tells the story of the Bell Rock lighthouse (and also gives a potted history of Arbroath) by means of wall boards and interesting displays. Very well laid out museum with very helpful and interested staff. Free admission and free parking - why wouldn't you want to visit?
