Dumfries and Galloway

You’ll find Creetown Heritage Museum on the main street of Creetown, a village once known as ‘Ferrytown of Cree’ because ferries used to cross the River Cree here, right back to the days when pilgrims made their way to the shrine of St Ninian at Whithorn.

Creetown Heritage Museum has a large collection of old photographs alongside period artefacts telling the story of Creetown’s peoples and industry across the last 200 years. We have old ledgers and registers with records invaluable for genealogy/family tree research.




Key Information

A chance to get in free to a very special, very local museum at the heart of its community.

Creetown is directly off the A75 Dumfries to Stranraer road, five miles east of Newton Stewart. The town is approached on a ‘D’ road, which runs through the centre of the village, where it is signposted St John Street. The Creetown Heritage Museum and Exhibition Centre is situated at the south end of St John Street. Car parking is permitted on the main street directly in front of the Centre
