This small museum is free to enter. Audio information is available, as well as gifts from the gift shop. Several floors showcase various artefacts connected with Mary Queen of Scots. Not suitable for wheelchair users or buggies.

Free entry and £1 for audio guide. This is a lovely old building which is intact. Gives a bite size history of Mary’s Life.

This is a lovely old building with plenty to see but not for the faint hearted. The stairs were very narrow, very steep and there was plenty of them. Admission was free, so no complaints!

The exhibit gives a thorough discussion of the last few years of Mary's life and of her visit to Jedburgh. Interesting displays.

A quaint little house in a quaint little town, with a fantastic history. Mary, Queen of Scots' house is intact, and contains a bite sized history of both her and the house. Don't miss the actual death mask of Mary, 500 years old and still...More
