Attraction details
Owner description: A museum for the unique town of Kirriemuir, and the beautiful Angus Glens. Situated in the old Town House, which was originally built in 1604, and was once the town's jail and courthouse. A detailed model of the town square in 1604 shows vividly what market day was like hundreds of years ago. Using models, displays and interactive screens you can find out about the past and present, including the life stories of famous Kirriemarians such as Sir J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan, and former frontman of rock band AC/DC, Bon Scott.

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.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is a lovely little museum with very friendly, helpful staff. Exhibitions change regularly. Great introduction to the surrounding area and very knowledgeable staff always ready to point you in the right direction. Probably keep you occupied for around an hour depending whether you're the type that reads all information provided in a museum.
Also a good selection of tourist information leaflets and books.

“So much to learn”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Having lived in Kirriemuir all my life, I thought I knew everything there was to know about Kirriemuir but I was wrong! This lovely little museum gives a great insight into the town and surrounding area and the friendly staff are on hand with some great snippets of information and were able to answer some queries I had about the town.

Would certainly recommend for a visit. Not one to miss!
