Our volunteer guide, Ryan, was careful to explain the important exhibits in an engaging way. When we showed particular interest, he would elaborate.

Well curated local artifacts. Excellent knowledgeable guides keen to tell you the Wallace story. Beautiful gardens near the museum building. Enjoyed seeing the local rug hookers working away that day on their crafts.

This was a very lovely and informative museum with a lot of facinating history and artifacts from this shipbuilding area. The museum staff were friendly and VERY knowledgeable, adding personal stories of what they heard and had been told by other local people.
