Future Museum is built around the key areas that make the south-west so distinctive from the rest of Scotland – its people, industries and arts. The website provides free access to the museum collections of Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway and creates a valuable resource for people of all ages.

Collection Focus

April's Collection Focus: The Dick Institute egg collection
