Dalbeattie Museum



The Trustees of Dalbeattie Museum have taken the decision NOT to open the museum this year to visitors. 

This has not been an easy decision, but due to the nature of the layout of the museum, we are unable to put in sufficient Social Distancing required by the Government. 

With this in mind we feel we cannot put our volunteers and visitors at risk. 

We have always prided ourselves on being a hands on / friendly museum but due to the current circumstances we cannot give our visitors that full on experience.

We look forward to seeing you all next year as we put together plans to hopefully open on the 1st of April 2021

All the very best.

Dalbeattie Primary School Book

History Of Dalbeattie Primary School Is Still Available!!!


This book was collated because the Primary School may close once the Dalbeattie Learning Campus has been 

built. It was felt important to record and document the history of the school.

Along with the book there is a DVD of class photographs, taken over the years.

This book is free to any pupil who attended the Dalbeattie Primary School



Reflections of Old Dalbeattie    

New DVD called Reflections of Old Dalbeattie

Our exciting new DVD has been launched. It is called

"Reflections of Old Dalbeattie".

Tommy Henderson reflects on some of Dalbeattie's history and along with his commentary are old pictures of Dalbeattie.

This DVD costs £5:00 and all proceeds go towards the running costs of our museum.


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.



A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at Dalbeattie Museum.
