‪Dropped in during the week but was disappointed as it is only open Saturdays and Sundays. A well maintained building with a lot of Solar Panels on the Roof . Next time I am in the area I will definitely look in when it is open‬

‪Sometimes the word Serendipity is too often used; but if you can stumble across a small Folk Museum anywhere other than the rolling hills of South Lanarkshire and be more impressed then good on you. My wife and I visited today and were surprised with the contents of the museum and the enthusiasm and knowledge of Jess and Val the two volunteers on duty. Do yourself a favour and visit on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon before the end of September as they close for the winter; you won't regret your visit.‬

‪What a great find. We turned up from Tasmania at the Crawfordjohn museum looking especially for family contacts and lovely Janet who was on duty there, rang a local who had the same surname as me. He and his wife came straight over, and brought with them the exact same photo I have of our GGGrandad, which was amazing. As a retired shepherd like our ancestor, he had donated items like his handmade boots and shepherds' crooks to the museum, which was full of interesting history about the ordinary local folk. We had a great time connecting with each other. It was exciting for us all to make family contacts this way. It's a great museum with lovely helpful staff. Do yourself a favour if in the area and go and visit! Although visiting castles and following the story of Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie is certainly interesting, you are missing out if you don't learn something about how everyday folk in Scotland lived - including famous local John Muir - as it is equally fascinating, and this museum provides that opportunity.‬

‪We picked up a leaflet in Sanquhar and made the picturesque journey to Crawfordjohn where the museum is very well signposted. Located in the old parish church the centre it only open in season and then only at weekends. The museum occupies the whole of the old church and the extensive collections totally fill the space available. Various well researched displays help to interpret the history of the area with an emphasis on John Muir's links. A selection of books are available for purchase. The 'Crawfordjohn Trail' is an excellent guide to all that the village has to offer and that is a lot. A very minimal entrance fee and a staff that are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.‬

‪What a fantastic wee place! An absolute treasure trove of local history and random stories. One of those 'collections from donations' so there are some very specialist little displays, just wander around and things will catch your eye. It helps that there have been some very interesting local residents!

It covers the surrounding area as well as Crawfordjohn-specific items. Make sure you don't miss the books of postcards, you can really track the development of the buildings and clothing styles over the years! The volunteer staff are very helpful.

Considering it's only £1.50 entry for adults and we spent about 2 hours there it felt like great value. Watch out for the limited opening hours!

Make sure you don't miss the 'Living on the Land' photos and poems while you're there (there's an exhibition in the nearby pub in August but you can see the books in the Heritage Venture any time I think).

Well worth a detour if you're in the area on a Sunday afternoon!‬

‪I may be a bit biased in my review, my name being Crawfordjohn in reverse, but I do feel that quite apart from the connection by name, I would have given the Crawfordjohn Heritage Venture top marks anyway.

Why? Well, as my tille indicates, quoting a proverb mentioned by the great Scottish novelist John Buchan (in his "John Burnet of Barns"), one really gets the sense in Crawfordjohn, and particularly in the Crawfordjohn Heritage Venture Museum, of having been transported out of the everyday world into another place and time. The exhibits lovingly collected in this museum speak vividly of a past world that still lives on in this preserved heritage.

The housing of the Museum in an old village Kirk enhances the heritage ambiance with the stone and wood redolent of an earlier era. The link with believers of that earlier era also comes through in a perusal of journals recounting the dreadful tribulations of local Covenanters.

I must mention the warm-hearted welcome and enthusiastic guidance from Keith Black, of the Committee, typical, I'm sure, of the friendliness and dedication of the volunteers who sustain and enhance this Heritage Venture.

It's worth looking through the souvenirs for purchase - the CD titled 'Full Circle - Out of the world - Music from Crawfordjohn" continues to bring back to me memories of this very special place.‬

‪For a delicious slice of Scottish social history, don’t miss the Crawfordjohn museum just off junction 13 of the M74. Former residents include Daniel Muir, father of the famous naturalist and Yosemite Park founder John, and stained glass artist Sadie McLellan, while the local quarry lays claim to producing the flying saucer shaped stones for the Scottish sport of curling. Among the exhibits were one of curling champion Jackie Lockhart’s signed shirts, a display of McLellan artworks – and a stern letter from Daniel telling his errant son to come home! When we visited in May, I ended up helping a couple of kids complete a quiz. Questions also involved trying to figure out the function of an eclectic collection of vintage farming and household gadgets. The boys seemed particularly taken with a picture of a grisly death mask of religious covenanter Alexander Peden – reputed to have hidden out in the surrounding hills. My own favourite item was the writings of a former child evacuee, brought to the live in the village manor house during the war. A photo of the kindly gardener mentioned in the story was hanging nearby on the wall – along with a picture of the old Post House, where we were staying!
Staffed by friendly and knowledgeable local volunteers, the museum is housed in the old church. Admission price is just £1.50, open Saturdays and Sundays 2-5pm from I May to last weekend in September.‬
