Moffat Museum has Something for Everyone.

Children

Children

We have exhibits to appeal to children. There is an old dolls house, an old school desk - complete with a slate and chalk to try and an interactive 'Moffat Ram' who, for a small donation, will show its ears when you pull its tail. There is also a children's quiz! From time to time Thomas the Tank engine runs on the model railway layout of Moffat station.

Family Historians

Family Historians

Local Clan and some family histories are held and censuses are available also. With notice help can be provided with personal family history research. Photographs of the gravestones of the old Kirkyard in Moffat will be held on computer and can be accessed through the computer in the Main Gallery.

Moffatonians

For the residents and the descendants of Moffat residents, the Museum will tell the story of the heritage of the town. The ceremonies and events are recorded in story and photograph. Changing exhibitions mean that you can see different things throughout the season. Quizes are available too!

Railway Enthusiasts

Railway Enthusiasts

There is much to interest railway enthusiasts. The Old Bakehouse displays items from the old Moffat Station and of course a model working railway. In the outside yard we have station signs from the Beattock and Moffat stations and a seat (wooden and reversible) from one of the old shuttle trains. We have a collection of old railway photographs also.

Schools and Groups

Schools and Groups

'Loan Boxes' are available to school and community groups to enable the handling of artifacts. These will be made up to order and can cover a particular historic period or interest. For example - Victorian domestic life. Walking tours of the town can be arranged with sufficient notice.
