Small museum with regularly changing artifacts. Free entry and children's educational area which needs updating.

Worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.

I confess, the Museum and Art Gallery was second choice because the Cathedral was closed. However, the art gallery has some sublime paintings of fungi by Beatrix Potter and the museum bit casts an interesting light on the history of Perth.

A Day At The Museum..... 🖼🗿👨‍🎨
Sep 2019 • Friends
A wonderful museum and art gallery in the city of Perth. Situated at the top end of George Street and beside the Concert Hall so easy to find on foot or by car with parking available close by. Access for all abilities which is good. A information desk with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The museum shop is well worth a visit too after your time around the museum. Not an overly large museum but you can happily spend time looking at the antiquities and works of art. Good for children too due to interactive activities that helps them explore the museum and learn about the exhibits. A lot of detail has gone into the exhibits, background of the antiquities and art work. Many exhibits with a detailed history which is good. I have been visiting the museum from a child and have visited many times with my own child. A lovely way to spend a few hours alone, with friends or as a family and to immerse yourself in Scottish and world history and culture! Make sure you visit when in Perth.

Lovely find in the city centre
Aug 2019
We took a day trip to Perth centre and wondered round the museum for something to do and really enjoyed the exhibits. I especially enjoyed reading about local agriculture and different displays than you would usually find in a museum. Definitely worth a walk around and a lovely way to spend our afternoon.
