“Brilliant place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I have been round it a few times and it's well worth it. The first time I went with son when he was small and we were in there for about 3 hours and it's quite a small museum but there is so much to see. They have new and exciting things there all the time to go and see. It's not a place you go once and that's it, you can keep going time and time again as they keep getting different things in to view

“Make This Your First Stop In Kirriemuir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Very interesting, highly informative museum - small but perfectly formed! Incredibly helpful and knowledgeable assistants on hand to answer all questions about Kirriemuir and the nearby Angus Glens.

“Great little museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Really enjoyed our visit here. Friendly, relaxed, not crowded, and a range of interesting things to look at. Liked the Bon Scott small exhibition - hope they can raise enough money for a stutue of him in the town.

“Wonderful free museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Set in a lovely old, small building there is lots to see and plenty of interest. High focus on J M Barrie and lots on former industry and ways of life. Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. Only moan would be dated, clumsy and clunky touchscreen system!

“Good find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Liked the variety of items. It was a wee find which we didn't plan on visiting. Only popped in because it was raining! Glad we did. Staff friendly and knowledgable.
