Terrific collection and engaging displays. Has much more inside than could be realised. When we visited the Camera Obscura was not open but there was enough to see for all tastes.
Being local I have visited the museum many times over the years, but, perhaps not as often as I should. It has a great variety of local, area and national artefacts on display over three floors and as others have mentioned the staff are always very pleasant and eager to answer any questions. It is highly informative and of interest... More
This was an interesting attraction with different displays covering three floors. The undisputed highlight was the camera obscura which is certainly worth the climb to the top!
The member of staff present when we visited was informative and eager to help. This museum has a very wide range of exhibits and they were all well presented. There was also 2 temporary exhibitions on, the one on the photography of tigers in 1920s India was particularly interesting.

This museum is well worth a visit and if you go on a clear day you will be able to town with the Camera Obscura. The staff are all very friendly and informative and made our visit most enjoyable. Well done Dumfries. The museum was free and a small fee(£2 concession) for the Camera Obscura.
Very interesting few hours spent here and don't miss the Obscura, which has a good story about the history of the installation thrown in. The main exhibitions are free to enter and only a small charge for the Obscura, which was well worth it. Lots of interest info about local area and also the staff were pleasant and helpful. Point...

I visited with my husband, mainly to see the Camera Obscura, but the Museum itself is also really interesting and worth taking the time to have a good look round. It covers everything from the area's wildlife, to fashion, dairy farming and the weather so there is defintiely something to interest everyone. The Camera Obscura has a (very) small fee... More
I recently visited the museum with family visiting from Canada. I had not been there for about 40 years and boy was I surprised it was amazing so many different things to see from stuffed animals to fashion to burial stones to the Camera Obscurer. There is something for all ages so no one will be left out. The staff... More
No Entrance fee but a small charge for "Camera Obscure" if you want. An interesting conversion of an Old Mill into a museum. It is located near the River Nith and the views from the museum are brilliant. Definitely a good visit.
