Myself and my sister visited here this afternoon. It was a great museum, very personal with plaques saying where the items had came from. Most things were from local houses/farms in the area. It was only £5 per adult which was very reasonable. It is...More

This old mill is crammed full of historical interest; predominantly costume and farm implements gathered from Ayrshire. And what a collection! The collection of costumes on display, which are genuine and not replicas, are in great condition and beautifully displayed. While not so familiar with...More

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.

No unfortunately not. The mill is a very interesting place to visit but is an old building. There is a cafe but no play area.
