Popped in here early in June 2017 and we are so glad we did. Lots of really interesting exhibits very well presented. Documents the history of South Queensferry very well.

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.
