A visit to the Museum in the historic Corn Exchange will open up the rich history of the town once visited by Kings, conquerors, poets and famous politicians.

The Museum is run totally by volunteers and in the year 2018/19 we had over 1,500 visitors. These visitors included local residents both young and older, school groups and brave individuals who came out at night to experience a Dark and Deadly Dalkeith Walking Tour®

Our income comes from book sales and ticketed activities such as the Walking Tours and book presentations but we would like to do more.
