More about

The creator of 'Peter Pan', novelist and dramatist J. M. Barrie was born here in 1860, one of a handloom weaver’s ten children. The outside wash house was his first theatre. The house next door contains an imaginative exhibition about Barrie’s life and works. In 2010, to mark the 150th anniversary of J. M. Barrie’s birth, the museum was refurbished to pay homage to the author and playwright. For the first time, a manuscript of 'Peter Pan', personal memorabilia and the Barrie family christening gown are all on display.
