The Stewartry Museum was founded in 1879, and first occupied part of the Kirkcudbright Town Hall. As the collection grew, the present purpose-built museum was planned and opened in 1893. The Museum has an old-world charm and exhibits a wealth of objects relating to the area known as The Stewartry of Kirkcudbrightshire.
It also has research facilities and holds an extensive local history library and photographic collection relating to the Stewartry. All of these resources can be accessed when visiting the Museum. Prints of the photographic archive can be supplied, for those unable to visit the museum in person a postal research service is also available for a small fee.
