Kirkaldy Testing Museum


About the Kirkaldy Testing Museum

A museum devoted to one massive machine, one of the first to methodically test metals for their strength at a time when the people still didn't fully understand how materials could fail.

It's now a larger museum, with a lot of testing machines dotted around the original.

Open on the 1st Sunday of the month for guided tours, and occasional Saturdays.
