Eating & Shopping


Our cafe will be closed for the immediate future but our caterpod can be found on our main picnic area, near reception. Pre-packed sandwiches, cakes, crisps, biscuits, ice-creams and hot and cold drink will be available – why not pop over and treat yourself! Credit card payments are taken as well as cash in the Caterpod.

With thanks to AIM for funding our caterpod.



Kirk’s Store Sweetie Shop

sweet shopOur traditional sweet shop is named after the Kirk family who farmed Aultlarie Croft prior to the museum moving onto this site. Unfortunately the Sweetie Shop won’t be open when we re-open from 29 July, but you can still visit the Croft House and see the recreation of a 1930’s sweet shop and living room from the hallway.



Gift shop

Along with cold drinks, ice creams for the sunshine or woolly hats and ponchos for those rainy days the gift shop is an essential stop off for your visit to the museum. Don’t forget your can also buy ice-creams and hot and cold drinks in the shop! We will be operating a one way system around the shop and limiting numbers at any one time – please remember your face mask (they are for sale too!)

Mail order can be arranged for certain items, please ask a member of our team.
