The Museum Inn was described in 1970 as, “One of those old country pubs which have been swallowed up in urban developments on the city’s outskirts over the past few decades.”
Little is known of the very early history of the Museum but it is believed that it began its life as a farmhouse being converted into a hostelry to cater for drovers in the late eighteenth century when cattle, sheep and geese were walked miles from farms on the west of the city on market days. Stories tell of many of these farmhouse conversions becoming outlets for the furtive traffic of rum and brandy smugglers of the Solway marshes.
