Door open days

9 September 2018 (11am to 4pm)


This two-storey building was the birthplace in 1860 of the playwright J.M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan. Gifted to the National Trust for Scotland in 1937, it is furnished as it might have been when Barrie lived there. It features a display on Barrie's literary and theatrical works, original manuscripts, and early theatical costumes used in the production of 'Peter Pan'.  The wash house outside is said to have been his first theatre - or the original Wendy House. The museum has recently been updated and many items are on view for the first time.
