Tullie House Museum And Art Gallery

Opened in 1893, the museum – which houses historic collections, contemporary art and family activities – originally also housed a library, an art school and a technical school.

It is a Grade I listed building, and the wall, gates and railings in front of the house are separately Grade I listed.

Over the years the schools and library were moved, and the museum underwent a number of redevelopments.

Situated close to the England/Scotland border, it was winner of the Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Award in 2015/16.
