Dalbeattie Museum

[Dalbeattie Museum]

More places need a messy, old-fashioned museum like Dalbeattie's. A truly odd assortment of thousands of items, piled to the rafters on higgledy-piggledy shelves, and hardly an information board in sight. Don't touch? Far from it - you're actively encouraged to touch the exhibits, whether they're old typewriters or a seat from the Glasgow trams. A few displays relate to local people - including the First Officer from the ill-fated Titanic - and local businesses, but many of the objects are from elsewhere in the Lowlands: an unpolished tribute to the last 100 years of the entire region.
