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.

Another tasty lunch here-soups,toasties quiche, puddings and cakes all to be highly recommended. The service is friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable given the overall quality. Museum display had changed from last time- visit this interesting local treasure.
