Trace the lives and beliefs of medieval monks in one of Scotland's largest and richest medieval abbeys. You will find remarkable sculptures of saints, demons and the famous bagpipe-playing pig. The treasures displayed in the museum include medieval spectacles, a scribe's inkwell and a carved Green Man.

The Cistercian monks and their lay brothers created an influential spiritual centre and a wealthy business around the abbey. King Alexander II and the mummified heart of Robert the Bruce are buried here.

Opening Times

April to September, 9.30am - 5.30pm. October to March, 10.00am - 4.00pm.
