Annan Museum

7-8 September 2019

This family friendly museum houses a permanent exhibition on the history of Annan and the surrounding area. A fascinating journey through time takes visitors from the prehistoric period up to the era of nuclear fission. Displays include costume, First World War memorabilia, town regalia and a remarkable collection of paintings depicting Annan and the Solway shore. Look out for a 4000 year old Bronze Age burial urn, mummified baby crocodiles and the 110 year old piece of chocolate! The museum also hosts a lively programme of special exhibitions and events throughout the season, together with visitor information and a shop stocking pocket money buys as well as local history books and greetings cards by local artists.
