This is a free museum and an interesting insight into the area. The slide show is worth a few minutes of your time.

As an avid knitter passionate about traditional Scottish knitting, I finally got to visit after many years of trying!
Can't recommend it highly enough for anyone with an interest in knitting, particularly Sanquhar knitting. Great displays, very accessible to get close to, lots of history included. Very amenable, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Knitting patterns for sale at the desk.
Was everything I hoped it would be, can recommend it, and will be back as soon as I can.

a factual place of local history, a slide-show of interest with good displays contained on a single floor in just 2 rooms
excellent exhibition of Sanquhar knitted gloves, very different than normal items and several unusual artifacts to be seen....closes lunch-time approx 1 - 2 pm....Football display and crafting displays to be seen, very good
