Dingwall Museum presents many local artefacts and fascinating tales of human exploits which are unique to Dingwall within a landmark building, once the centre of local government. Over the years members have designed displays to create pictures of the past for visitors to study and enjoy.
Military Room is a showcase for Highland Heroes and a touch screen presents an interactive account of local POW veterans after their capture at St. Valery (France). The Local Smiddy is a reconstruction of the old Mill Street smiddy using all the tools of the trade donated by family members.
By-gone days in the kitchen are shown with a collection of household artefacts. The Old Council Chamber was built in 1905. The newly refurbished Chamber recalls the by-gone era of the Royal Burgh Council. The display includes the Provost’s Chain of Office dating from 1874, robes and other artefacts reflecting the former glory of the Council.
