Museum opening times 2017
From 1st April to 31st October 2017, the Museum will open 10am-5.30pm, last entry at 5pm.
We now have a wifi connection in the Museum and Library called, “Armadale Castle”. Free to use, it means visitors can use the own smart devices, laptops etc to access the internet. No longer do you need to bring all those bits of paper, rather store your family history files in the cloud and access them from the Library when carrying out research here. We hope this new service enhances our visitor experience.
