Kinneil Museum is located in the 17th century stable building of Kinneil House.

On its ground floor, redesigned and reopened in Spring 2015, is the story of Bo'ness town, built on Roman remains, once identified with maritime trade and industry, and now valued for its architecture and its remarkable annual Fair.

The upper floor gallery serves as an interpretation centre for Kinneil Estate, with its House built by the Dukes of Hamilton and its associations with famous names from Scottish history, Mary Queen of Scots and James Watt among them.

The Estate contains part of the Antonine Wall World Heritage Site and one of its fortlets, the site of the deserted Kinneil medieval village of which only a ruined church remains, and a section of the John Muir Way opened in 2014.
