We weren't going to go to the museum but we missed our bus to Doune and had some time before the next one so we went in. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. The museum is small and volunteer run but the people are super nice. They were very helpful and answered every question we had. The displays... More

Nothing to dislike. Original centuries old building with a small garden and well. Lovely welcoming staff.

The Museum has recently been upgraded and holds a variety of interesting artifacts. Many relate to the Cathedral, others to WW1 and WW2 and times gone by. Quite a mixture. There is a gift shop and the ladies on duty enjoy chatting with visitors. And it's free but donations are requested. Take time to visit and enjoy.

This is much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. I was really surprised that it is free to enter although donations are appreciated. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Historic and informative. Free Friendly and a nice wee stop over demonstrating what you'd otherwise look over ... Well illustrated displays and a welcome retreat from the rain and a pleasant surprise.

I went here a while ago just for something to do. I am in a wheelchair and I saw there was a step at the door and steps leading inside. My PA went inside and asked if they had access and a woman from the gift shop took us round the back. I don't previously remember going to the museum... More

This is a small but fascinating museum with some extremely interesting artefacts. The history of the town is attractively displayed with colourful illustrations and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. The shop stocks a good selection of quality goods. The DVD is informative and entertaining.

Lots of historical information, a great display of Andy Murray's achievements including a shirt he wore when he won US open and his team GB tracksuit top. Lots of souvenirs on sale.
