[Queensferry Museum]

Queenferry Museum showcases the history of South Queensferry, located on the High Street in the centre of this old town. With windows overlooking the Forth Rail Bridge, it should be a fine place to ponder past and present transport links across the firth, local people, events such as the Ferry Fair and Burryman's Parade, and temporary exhibitions (the 100th anniversary of WWI when we visited), but unfortunately the displays are pretty dated. Local rivalries are very much in evidence: we were amused by a panel about ferry companies overcharging passengers; this made very sure to point out that the boatmen all hailed from North Queensferry on the other side of the channel!
