Located at 12 North Street, the St. Andrews Heritage Museum & Garden contains glimpses of life in St. Andrews across the centuries. Though the museum house dates from the 1600s, the site was first built on around 1140. The ground floor of the museum features tools and products from industries and shops in St. Andrews including a shop counter reconstructed to resemble Aikman and Terras (the local grocer’s from 1837-1981), a display on dentistry, and a replica chemist shop. On the first floor are temporary exhibitions on a wide range of topics relating to St. Andrews and the surrounding area. The gardens in back provide a quiet and beautiful space to enjoy. Please check the museum website for opening hours.
