“Ye Olde Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

If you are over 50 years old, and come from the west of Scotland........this is the place for you! It is stuffed full of 20th Century memorabilia. Hundreds of old photographs giving a fascinating recollection of days gone by.

“Lovely staff, a bit of a hotchpotch of local artefacts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Typical of this sort of local 'visitor centre' layout. a lot of local bits and bobs , but if you've seen one ration book and gas mask you have seen them all. The Highland Mary exhibit was good though. just a little formulaic.

“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great to see all the things that have been saved from earlier years in Dunoon. Should weather be a bit on the wet side, this would keep young and old entertained for a couple of hours.
