Thanks for taking the time to visit our Museum which surely must be one of the most prominent buildings in Dunoon sitting as it does across from our Victorian Pier. It is also very close to the main shopping area. Somewhat surprised at your comment...More

Enjoyed the history of the area. The film show showing postcards from earlier times alongside pictures from modern days were really interesting and made you realise how times have changed! Well worth a visit!
