The history of the mill and the contents of the museum are just so exceptional in telling the story of rural Ayrshire life. One visit is not enough.

We visited Dalgarven Mill last week (Aug 2017) and found it absolutely amazing. The Mill was hidden away down a small lane but you could hear the water wheel going as we parked the car. The ground floor and some of the 1st floor are...More

Visited on a number of occasions and I have always been impressed with the owner/curator's enthusiasm and the eclectic mix of Ayrshire history that he has assembled. It is definitely worth a visit, lovely setting, good little cafeteria and great for a day out.

If it's The Museum of Ayrshire Country Life and Costume at Dalgarven Mill you want to visit, I think we paid £4.50 per adult, sorry I don't know the price for children. Hope this is of help. We really enjoyed our visit and... More
