Looks wonderful from the outside, interesting on the inside
Oct 2021
A great LITTLE museum. It looks fab with the surrounding the gardens and the views across the bay are stunning from the lookout.
Its only £3 per adult to enter the museum which is good value as you could spend a good hour or so reading about the local history, looking at the local artifacts and there are some interactive exhibits that the children would enjoy also

Informative and helpful
Sep 2021 • Solo
I received a warm welcome and when the gentleman working there found out I was in Dunoon to write about the pier for my blog, he gave me lots of useful and interesting information. He clearly knows his local history inside out and was very enthusiastic about it. He was very helpful and informative. It's a nice museum with displays about the Inverclyde ferries and Victorian room displays.

Thank you very much for such a kind review. It is appreciated. I have drawn it to the attention of the two young ladies who also work here just to annoy them! It was a pleasure to help you and I trust that your project goes well.

Small but interesting.
Sep 2019 • Family
The entrance fee was a small amount and the museum was small. I am glad we went though as the exhibits were very interesting and I came away a lot more knowledgeable about the local area.

Compact history of Dunoon
Sep 2019
This is a small museum near the castle hill. The exhibits are well presented and show the history of Dunoon. The video display of photos from the past comparing them with up to date photos from like positions was particularly good. Interesting place to pass a couple of hours.
