The Largs Museum is run by volunteers from the Largs Historical Society.
Since 1975 it has been housed in one of the oldest building in Largs. In 1967 Alex Simpson acquired two weavers cottages in Manse Court to house his growing collection of photographs and local artefacts. In 1975 the adjoining Kirkgate House was incorporated into the building we have today.
The premises were gifted by Mr A Simpson. The Museum is open to the public 2 - 5pm Mondays to Sundays inclusive, from the last week in May until
the North Ayrshire Open Day on the first Sunday in September. (subject to volunteer staffing availability)
Visits to the Museum may also be arranged at other times by prior arrangement with the Society.
The Largs and District Historical Society hosts monthly
Lectures given by invited speakers on a wide range of topics, mainly related to the town of Largs and the surrounding area, during the months of September to April.
There are day, half-day and evening outings to places of interest during the summer months.
