Dumfries: Museum Dumfries: Museum No Data


The museum and camera obscura are located at one of the highest points in the town centre, with the camera obscura looking more like a stunted lighthouse. The museum tells the history of the region from the early stone age through to the modern era. At the time of visiting in July 2021 there was even an exhibition on Plague covering The Black Death, Cholera, Spanish Flu and the then ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the restrictions in place because of the latter the camera obscura was closed to visitors.
