Kinneil Museum closed on May 17

KINNEIL Museum will be closed today (Monday May 17, 2010) to allow for display maintenance to take place.  It will reopen at 12.30pm on Tuesday 18 May. Falkirk Council – which runs the facility – apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Museum is open all year, normally from Monday to Saturday from 12.30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Kinneil Museum is located in the 17th century stable block of Kinneil House and acts as an interpretative centre for Kinneil Estate. The exhibition 2,000 Years of History tells the story of the park from Roman times to the present day. Antoninus Pius, St Serf, Mary, Queen of Scots and James Watt are among the many historical characters associated with the estate.

Please note that guide dogs and hearing dogs for the deaf are welcome within the museum – however, the upper floor of Kinneil Museum is not wheelchair accessible.  A limited number of free parking spaces for cars are available beside the museum. A larger car park is just a five minute walk away at Kinneil Woods. The Museum carries a range of items for sale. All major credit cards are accepted but staff are unable to process card transactions under £5.
