    worth a visit, only takes half an hour to get round it, but its free to the public, and the kids love it. They even give little quizzes out to the kids. Not like usual boring museums

    First to Review

    Fell over the Old Bridge House in Dumfries whilst trying to find the Burns Centre. Lucky for us, as it's quite a sweet, if brief visit to a 17th century house, without toilet or running water, that was occupied until 1959 (last occupant raised 6 kids on one floor of the house, then split into two flats). Originally built to house a cask maker, it is built into the bridge that crosses over to Dumfries itself from Maxwelltown (?). I know this because a remarkably helpful man told us all of this and more when we wandered in (we also had a right royal moan about the Edinburgh trams, but then again who wouldn't?).

    The items on display are a little mind boggling - no description cards and for some reason, there are displays of childrens toys from the last century, dentistry and living quarters. Just not sure why here and what the intent is? If I understood the meaning of the displays, this would definitely go up to a 4 star. It's free too and definitely something to support remaining so.
