For a small village, it was a nice experience, relevant to the area. Has information about what happened near here through the most recent ages

I was very pleasantly surprised by the size inside and the amount of information packed in. There was clear and easy progression from one exhibit to the next and the information was easily accessible. The wheelchair access was adequate for the most part but some of the collections could not be seen.

Very deceptive, looks very small from the outside but is quite large on the inside. Very interesting facts about the Cathedral and life within the Dunblane area throughout the centuries right up to the present day

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 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.
