“Worth a look around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

A really interesting, volunteer run exhibition of Dunoon and the surrounding area. Pretty much everything is covered: From the days when Argyll was known as Dal Riada, Vikings, War-time, Victorian, models and dioramas galore.

Also, take a wee wander up Castle Hill itself, and take in the views across the town and both up and down the Firth of Clyde

“Interesting place helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We went to the museum at the end of our day in Dunoon. It was really interesting. They had life size displays of rooms from houses from times of old. Ships and boats were displayed as well as gas masks etc. from war times. They had a drawing room and nursery from Victorian times which showed how people lived in the olden days. A DVD showed the town 100 years ago and as it is now. It cost £2 to get in but it was well worth it.

“Take Time To Visit Castle House Museum.....Well Worth It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Wouldn't visit Dunoon without visiting the Castle House Museum. Always find something new every visit. Brilliant laid out, telling the story of Dunoon and surrounding areas. Brilliant now and then video to watch. Displays change every year ive visited. John Stirling is a brilliant source of knowledge, always happy to answer any questions you have.
Every one should visit at least once, but worth many many visits.
