Special Exhibition
In November 2017 the Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture staged its biggest collections-based show in a generation: ‘Ages of Wonder'. 'Original Prints and the Art of Etching’ is one of two galleries taken from this critically acclaimed exhibition, currently on tour in Scotland.

The exhibition includes prints from the likes of Rembrandt and David Wilkie to Ian Howard and Will Maclean. The best Scottish printmaking of the last two centuries from the RSA’s Recognised Collection of National Significance is joined by the new prints created by contemporary artists during the original 'Ages of Wonder' exhibition.

Tuesdays - Saturdays 10 am - 5 pm
Sundays 1 pm - 5 pm

Queen's Voluntary Service Award
We are delighted to announce that Biggar Museum and all its volunteers have been given the prestigious accolade of 'Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service'!
The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It is the MBE for volunteer groups, and the Biggar Museum volunteers are defnitely one of a kind!

Why don't you pay them a visit in the museum and ask them about their involvement? Many of them have been contributing their time and efforts to the museum for years! And if you are interested in joining the group, email to inquire further.
Biggar Stories
Biggar and the House of Fleming
The dramatic story the House of Fleming in Biggar begins in the 14th century. It features murder and execution, loyalty and tragedy. The new narrative of the House of Fleming introduces many less well-known but highly significant figures.

Visit the museum to hear about their trials and escapades as they become inextricably caught up in the saga of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Look out for the reconstructed model of the Fleming family home in Biggar, Boghall Castle.
