Dalbeattie Museum

 Subscription Time Again For 2015 

It is that time of year again that we ask you to please renew your subscription with us, so that you may continue to be a member and have a voting right at our A.G.M.

The museum has had quite a bit of expense this year with upgrading our security system, installing new cameras that have the ability to record 24 hours a day.

New phones throughout the museum, to save our volunteers racing down the stairs to answer any incoming calls. We also had the outside of the museum painted.

You valued support is vital for the continued running of our award winning museum.

We have kept the subscription fee at  £5:00 or £2:50 for O.A.P's     Thank You

The Museum is now Closed for the winter, but watch out for our Christmas Display!

The theme for this year was "Dalbeattie at War".

This year was the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War and the museum has joined in with the commemoration and put on special display of artefacts appertaining to this period. These range from badges, medals, trench art, helmets, model aeroplanes, postcards and much more.

Not only is the war display new but also upstairs a new display has been set up depicting an old school room and shows items relating to the good old days in the classroom, especially the tause that sat on the headmistresses table.

The radio bunker has been revamped too now include a radio taken from a Lancaster Bomber and various other wireless equipment.

Other displays include the Granite industry, farming equipment and Grandpa’s Shed along with steam models and Victorian parlour. 

The backbone of the museum is the volunteers who man the premises through the summer months and who are always on hand with a cheery smile and ready to answer all the numerous questions from our growing number of visitors to the town.

If you have not visited the museum, then this year put in on the top of your “to do” list and spend an hour or two reminiscing.

Admission is FREE.

 

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at Dalbeattie Museum.
