I had a good look around the museum during a holiday in the local area. I enjoyed the history of his achievements prior to taking part in Formula One. Some more history of his team-mates would be good, and some season statistics would be good,...More

For £4, definitely worth a look. Plenty to see, my hubby, son and grandson all enjoyed it. This is actually on the same site as the cocoa bean, so easy to do both.

Nice small display of the steps taken by David Coulthard to end up as a F1 driver. Lots of cars on display and nice to see how F1 has evolved in the period David was driving.

Not a huge museum but absolutely worth a visit if you’re an F1 fan. Could have earned an extra star by having more information on display. I know the sport quite well so did a lot of explaining to my partner about what everything was...More

I've been wanting to come here for so long and a family holiday to the area gave me an opportunity. Let's be clear about one thing, if you're simply wanting to kill some time with young kids who need to be 'entertained', then look elsewhere....More

Dropped in recently whilst on a drive around the Scottish borders. It is situated off the A75 near the village of Twynholm, although oddly there are no signs for the museum on the main road, so follow the directions for the Cocoa Bean Chocolate Factory...More

Much improved museum since the move to the Cocoabean site. Loved the screened interview of David but it would be better located nearer the entrance as you can hardly hear it when the simulator is on. Loads of memorabilia to look at but the lighting...More

10am to 4pm during the school holidays. It's also relocated to just outside Twynholm. Best to message the museum itself as I did via Facebook before visiting. They're very helpful.
