Across the fifteenth century Devorgilla Bridge is the Old Bridge House. Built in 1660 into the sandstone of the bridge itself, Dumfries' oldest house is now a museum of everyday life in the town.  You can see the family kitchen, nursery and bedroom of a Victorian home, and pay a visit to an early dentist's surgery! A museum trail brings the story alive.

VisitScotland has awarded the Old Bridge House Museum with 3 stars for the standard of the facilities and services.
