Founded in 1943 the Dunblane Museum is situated right at the heart of the Cathedral City of Dunblane. Few museums can boast that the building in which they are housed is a museum piece itself. A Grade 'A' Listed Building dating from 1624 when it is recorded as being the house of the Dean of the Cathedral, and variously a butcher's shop and a chemical laboratory, until its present conversion in 1943.
The six rooms downstairs, two with barrel-vaulted ceilings have much to offer both the casual visitor, and the more serious student, of any age, with extensive genealogical information from the burial records of all the Dunblane churches.
The Museum is open to visitors from 1st April to the third week in October from 10.30am - 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday. Sundays in July and August, from 2.30 to 4.00pm. During the winter people wishing to research material can visit by arrangement by contacting the Curator.
