Jim Clark was Scotland’s first, and double, Formula One World Champion, Indy 500 winner and one of the greatest racing drivers of all time.
The Jim Clark Motorsport Museum is a-must for motor racing fans and anyone looking for a great day out. Celebrate his life and inspiring racing career with an interactive experience. Explore his incredible career within the motor racing world and his life beyond farming in the Scottish Borders.
Discover Jim’s cars and trophies and watch him race in films from the time. Take away a memento of your visit from the specially curated gift shop. Please note that the simulator and the interactive sessions are not available at the moment with the current restrictions in place. Check out the leaflet here.
Exhibiting for 2021 we have ‘Clark in Art’, including portraits, paintings, prints, and other visual media held by members of the family and supplemented by material from the Jim Clark Trust and the museum’s own holdings.

Kids Trail – Lap of the Museum
We have recently launched a new kid’s activity trail! Kids can tour the museum looking out for the toy cars which have been hidden amongst the displays to tick off their map and get a champion sticker. The ‘Lap of the Museum’ was created to replace the fun, hands-on activity for our younger visitors that we had to remove for Covid safety reasons.
This is FREE with purchase of family or children’s tickets.
