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.

A short walk from the museum takes visitors to the Antonine Wall, awarded World Heritage Site status in July 2008, and Roman fortlet, a medieval Church and the site of the medieval village, Kinneil House and James Watt's cottage.

For schools, Kinneil Museum is particularly useful for studying the Romans, medieval industry and fieldwork skills. Activity guides are available. Visit Heritage Learning for more information on how to book a school visit.
