LARGS Museum has reopened with a revamped new look.

The museum is a historical hub for the town with the volunteers ready to share their wealth of knowledge on its history with visitors.

The facility will be open from Thursday to Sunday between 1.30 and 4.30pm, with visitors now able to browse the vast array of materials and artefacts on show housed within new cabinets and display cases.

Run by Largs and District Historical Society, volunteers said this week they are keen to get more people engaged and up to speed on the rich history of the town.

Volunteer and local historian Sarah Goldie, pictured left, said: "There aren't many places which have so much of its own local history available to view.

"This is an excellent facility for the town and and it is important that people use and make the most of it.

"A lot of the volunteers, like myself, have lived their whole life in Largs and their knowledge of the history is from their own memories, as well what we have read and learned in the role.

"There are some very fascinating artefacts for people to see and ask about."

The museum is housed in one of the oldest building in Largs, gifted to the town by Alex Simpson and A.D Cameron.

In 1967 Mr Simpson acquired two weavers cottages in Manse Court to house his growing collection of photographs and local artefacts.

It was in 1975 the adjoining Kirkgate House was incorporated into the building we see today.

The reconstruction works were funded by Ayr County Council and the Burgh of Largs, with the reopening commemorated by Rear Admiral the Earl of Glasgow on November 26 1975.

The museum has enjoyed a recent facelift and visitors can enjoy displays including the Brisbane Queen, wartime Largs and exploring our Viking links.
