The museum will be closed for 2020 due to Covid19. Having reviewed the Scottish Governments guidance for museums to open we can not comply with all of these and therefore do not want to put our visitors, volunteers and community at additional risk.

All being well we shall reopen in the spring of 2021 and look forward to greeting you then.
