Worthwhile popping in if visiting South Queensferry. But with very limited opening times ,which are cut further if a wedding is taking place in the same small building, not worth a special trip to visit.

It contains intersting pictures and stories of the construction of both the rail and road bridges amongst other things. It's not a huge museum but it is worth a visit and its donations rather than an entry fee.

The museum may appear to be small, but the rich history of Queensferry is well documented and nicely presented. I found the historical representation of the war and that of the bridge engaging!
