“An interesting browse”
Review of Annet House Museum

Annet House Museum
Ranked #8 of 24 things to do in Linlithgow
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The museum tells the story of the traditional trades associated with Linlithgow particularly of the textile industries but the garden is a real gem. It's a traditional rigg shape ie each house had a kitchen garden an inner rigg whilst keeping cattle on the outer riggs in pastureland away from the house. The garden rises up on terraces each packed with traditional fruit, vegetables and particularly herbs. Not only is it lovely on a June day it's also extremely informatively labelled.

Lovely museum telling the history of the local area. The gardens in particular the herb garden is beautiful and on a sunny day a great place to sit and watch the world go by, albeit very slowly.

Interesting local history, well presented, right in the High Street. Well worth a visit.

We visited during the folk festival so had some live singing in the garden. Added a lovely atmosphere to an interesting garden. Do look for the ice house. Lots of steps as there are several terraces on the side of the hill.

From the front entrance there is nothing to jump out at you but inside there is a calmness and tranquillity. The History boards inside are informative and as you leave the House at the back you come upon a lovely garden . Its just a lovely garden to to breathe in some good vibes .
