THE GREAT WAR - (World War One)

A display of memorabilia covering many aspects of the War including those of local interest.


Some of the interesting and fun activities of our organization.

Thanks to everyone who helped with baking and tearoom assistance at the recent Christmas Card coffee morning.
The Museum has had a very busy and interesting week, with P7 pupils from WK School, who enthusiastically took part in being Victorian Children and Servants for a morning, working hard at labour intensive household tasks, like polishing brass, washing clothes with a wash board, weighing vegetables, and copperplate handwriting The jellies and soda bread were a great success, and a welcome respite from all the hard work. The children learned about old West Kilbride, and how much conditions have changed over the years. Special thanks to Ailsa Wardrop for masterminding this wonderful experience, and to Mrs Jane Young who brought her spinning wheel and loom, and let the children try their hand at spinning and weaving.

 During the summer months the Museum Committee marked the
 Queen's Diamond Jubilee by having a display of Coronation memorabilia and
 local stories of the day.

is from the 17th to the 31st May 2014. Contact 01294 823 284 for details.

Our previous display featured Fyfe Yachts etc. as shown below!






We are proud of this achievement and in the spring of 2011 the Museum was awarded MLA Registered Status (Museums, Libraries and Archives).
