‪We were staying in Stranraer for a few days in June 2021 and one afternoon we decided to visit this museum. We were unaware that because of the COVID restrictions in place at the time that visits were by appointment only. However when we arrived there were no visits booked so we were allowed admittance provided that we could complete our tour in about 30 minutes.

While there is much to see about the early history of the area and a lot of agricultural exhibits from around the 17th Century onwards, my primary interest was in seeing exhibits relating to the role of the adjacent Loch Ryan during the Second World War, and in the years immediately following. This was because during my employment in the Scottish Office in the late 1990s I spent a couple of years working on the dumping legacy of surplus redundant munitions into the designated sea disposal site and surrounding area within the Beaufort's Dyke deep water trench in the North Channel. I also have more than a passing interest in the range of other military activities that took place in the area.

There was one other pair of exhibits worthy of particular mention. This is the painting of the sinking of the passenger ferry the 'MV Princess Victoria' in gale force weather conditions on 31 January 1953 and the George Cross awarded phosthumously, to David Broadfoot GC, the ship's Radio Officer who stayed at his position. even though the ship was sinking, sending messages to shore stations to enable them to locate the ship. The George Cross medal was donated to the museum by Officer Broadfoot's descendants a number of years ago.

Well worth visiting if you are interested in the history of the area.‬

‪This is a really good museum in a nice building. Lots to see and read about. Nicely laid out over various floors. It is free.

Good supply of local books and census stuff for any genealogist.‬

‪We came here on a dull damp Monday afternoon and I think we had the Museum to ourselves. It was very quiet, however ,we enjoyed our visit here. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and provided us with information on the museum and the best route to take to look at the collection. The museum is thoughtfully laid out and contains a good variety of local artefacts, and it seemed much bigger inside than we originally expected.

At the time of our visit there was an Art Exhibition by the Sea Pyot Arts Group on the top floor entitled "The Sea, the sea" . We spent some time looking at the paintings and there was a good variety of work. However, we thought that a number of the artists had visions of grandeur in the amount they were charging for their pictures, truly outrageous in certain cases. A nice collection though.‬

‪Spent more than an hour here on a very wet day, but it's well worth a visit anyway. Geology, pre-history, industrial heritage, wartime moments and seafaring. Plus dinosaur exhibition! Modern display s and not tatty! Well done.‬

‪We were visiting the dumfries and galloway area and thought we'd check out Stranraer. From the outside this little museum doesnt look to offer much, and it was a bit annoying to get to on foot due to the construction happening next to it (which is blocking off some of the pavement). From the outside, we weren't expecting much as much of stranraer looks a little run down - outside the museum being no exception. We were pleasently surprised however when we got inside, as the musuem was larger than we expected it to be and the displays were well kept. While we were visiting, there was a cool little dinosaur exhibition on the top floor that looked fantastic for kids. We took a quick look, but were more interested in the local history.

There was quite a bit to read in here, and some really cool photos. My partner really loved the old glass bottles on display, the logos on them were 'very retro' in his words. The museum staff were friendly enough, and told us to look around. The museum was free too, which is also a plus!‬

‪We visited the museum and to our grand daughter's delight there is a dinosaur exhibition at the moment. I have to say the exhibition is fantastic with not only dinosaurs on display but activities for the children too - dressing up, colouring, games, jigsaws. There were a few families in at the same time as us and the kids were all having a ball. This may be a small museum but this exhibition was outstanding. The other exhibitions are also well worth and visit and are very interesting.‬

‪This museum gives a solid overview of the historic, economic, and geologic aspects of Stranraer. Great photos and artifacts accompany the text in the exhibits.‬
