In 1795 the great social historian, Thomas Carlyle was born in this humble house. The three rooms of the museum contain many of Carlyle's possessions, providing a fascinating insight into nineteenth century life in a small Scottish town. The birthplace has been open to the public since 1883 and has changed very little in that time, giving an authentic look into a Victorian household.
