The Devil's Porridge Museum tells the story of munition workers in WWI.
The towns of Eastriggs and Gretna were built to house the 30,000 men and women who worked at HM Factory Gretna producing Cordite propellant.
The museum gets its name from the nickname of Cordite, coined by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
"We're hoping that we're going to have interactive displays that the will who will come along will love, the children will have a trail to follow, they'll be inspired by it.
I think it's important that we tell future generations about our heritage."
