There are four exhibition areas on the ground floor and an outside yard where you will see agricultural tools and exhibits relevant to Moffat's railway history. The Upper floor displays exhibits in cases and is accessed by a short flight of stairs.
In this lovely light and airy space we show key exhibits from different periods in Moffat's history. Ranging from the area's important geology to the rise of Moffat as an important a Spa town. Our two unique items on loan from the National Museum of Scotland are on display here. The 6000 year old Rotten Bottom longbow and a Roman gold fibula both found near to Moffat.
This room shows a photographic streetscape of the buildings of Moffat based on the original drawings of Peter Warden, once a resident of Moffat. You can buy a Town Trail Map full of the history of the buildings with which you can explore the town and identify the buildings yourself. Also view a video of Moffats history.
There are eight display cases upstairs covering different aspects and people associated with the history of Moffat. Please note that this area is accessible by a staircase with 14 steps.
This room was originally a bakehouse for the town and it still has its original Scotch oven. There is a working model of the old Moffat railway station and our temporary exhibition space is here.
This was the original acess into the Old Bakehouse. The cobbled yard now houses an example of a locally built stone dyke and agricultural implements, a reversible railway carriage seat from the train which ran between Beattock and Moffat and station signage in the original blue and white.
Here you can watch a seven minute video which tells the story of Moffat's history.
