Owner description: The Stewartry Museum was founded in 1879, and first occupied part of the Kirkcudbright Town Hall. As the collection grew, the present purpose-built museum was planned and opened in 1893. The Museum has an old-world charm and exhibits a wealth of objects relating to the area known as The Stewartry of Kirkcudbrightshire.

The Stewartry Museum is a great place to get a feel for the lowlands. Many interesting exhibits, and this year a fine exhibit about the people leaving Scotland and moving to America and Australia. It covers lots of interest in the kirkcudbright area, including many interesting artifacts and art related items. Loved every moment, kind and helpful people who run it couldn't have been nicer. Everyone there was a joy to talk to.
