What a fantastic museum, brilliant 10 minute DVDs playing on a loop. Not too much, but sufficient information boards. Lots of little rooms well laid out. Friendly, interesting volunteers. We spent so long in here, we ran out of time for anything else.

I went here to see if they sold gold postboxes, even though they didn't they did have other things like a fridge magnet, very interesting.

Small museum beside the Andy Murray post box and the cathedral. Quite a few exhibits. There is also a small cabinet with some Murray memorabilia which fans may find interesting.

A great run through the history of Dunblane, was really surprised with how well it was laid out, good mix of exhibits from Andy Murray and back through the ages, the guides were very helpful, well worth a visit, free to get in, but leave a wee donation to help with the upkeep, these places are worth maintaining.
