In the Exhibition visitors can trace Gibbon’s life through a selection of story boards, display cases and an audio visual display.
Rare and valuable books can be viewed many of which belonged to the author, as well as personal effects and photographs kindly donated and loaned by his family and friends.
The Centre stands within two miles of the farm where Mitchell spent his boyhood and only yards from the parish school where his talent first flowered. When he died, his ashes were laid to rest in nearby Arbuthnott churchyard.
The Centre is open to the public every day between 10am and 4.30pm from the beginning of March until the end of October. Admission charge for the exhibition is £3 or £2.25 concession.
Groups can arrange to visit both during and outwith our normal opening times by appointment. A special group menu is available which, in addition to our normal home baking and light meals, includes a high tea or supper choice. Groups are required to book in advance.
