Attraction Information

The Linlithgow Story Museum, based at Annet House Museum, is full of interesting information about this historic town, its strategic importance, and the people who live there. It was also the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots! The museum is open between the beginning of April to the end of October, and it is free to visit!

There is so much to discover here, from details of the Battle of Linlithgow Bridge to the first recorded assassination! Interactive exhibitions and intriguing artefacts tell the tale of the town's past, with plenty to keep the kids occupied and interested. The educational displays on the upper floor cover the various trades of the town, which included chemicals, leatherworking, and chemicals, so it's a great spot for some secret schooling and ideal for extra credit school work.

Once you have finished inside, there is a beautiful garden to explore, which extends over 3 terraces and is designed to show the garden as it would have looked back when Annet House was first built, with inspiring examples of some of the herbs, vegetables, and fruits that will have been grown here. There is also a live willow maze for the kids (and you!) to explore, plus a statue of Mary Queen of Scots to spot!
