Dunbar Town House Museum and Gallery
With its distinctive witch’s hat tower and its bell, clock and sun dials, the Town House has been the focus of life in Dunbar since the 16th century.
Our staff are always on hand to chat about the town and the history of the building. You can visit the council chamber – scene of the infamous witch trials – and one of Scotland’s most notorious jail cells.
The building is accessible on all levels and is home to a museum and gallery with changing history and art exhibitions as well as a local history display area and research room managed by the Dunbar and District History Society.
We will be providing guided tours of the venue at selected times each afternoon. We will also have children’s activities based on our current museum exhibition celebrating the relationship between Dunbar and the sea.
Guided tours of the building – including our rarely seen jail cell – are led by History Society volunteers. Tours will take place every half hour from 1.30-4pm. Meet on the ground floor.
