The Museum is situated in the very atmospheric Halliwell's Close. The narrow, cobbled lane with outhouses, which was formerly gas-lit and was typical of many such Closes in Selkirk, has a compelling history dating back over 400 years.

The museum building itself dates from the end of the 18th century and is part of what is probably the oldest surviving row of dwellings in the historic town of Selkirk.

Halliwell's House and Close take their name from Robert Halliwell who was a wig maker who owned buildings in the Close at the beginning of the 18th century.
