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.
Before road transportation became popular or available,
South-West Scotland had an abundance of railways. Many were used
for commercial purposes while others served as the main means of
passenger transport in many rural areas. The regions of South-West
Scotland can also boast the first railway in Scotland which ran
from Kilmarnock to Troon.
