The Stewartry Museum

St. Mary Street
Dumfries and Galloway

The Stewartry Museum was founded in 1879, and first occupied part of Kirkcudbright Town Hall. As the collections grew, the present purpose-built museum was opened in 1893.

In recent years the museum interior has been considerably upgraded, whilst retaining its charm as traditional late Victorian museum. Its collections chiefly relate to the human and natural history of the Stewartry also known as Kirkcudbrightshire (the eastern half of Galloway).

The permanent collection includes the "Siller Gun" - Britain's earliest surviving sporting trophy, and works by Kirkcudbrightshire artists including Jessie M King.

Temporary exhibitions highlight different aspects of the collection and Museums Service activities.
