This will be our first full year of opening since all the Covid lockdowns.

As you may have seen we now have “Museum Open” signs at each end of the village. We are fairly confident that this has helped to increase the visitor numbers this year so far. A further attraction has been our four new exhibits, History of Abernethy’s Masonic Lodge, The Witches of Abernethy, Mills of Aberargie and Spitfires of WW2 lost in the hills behind the village. We are encouraged by the many visitors from afar but still disappointed by the lack of local folks that come through our door.

We were awarded a grant to fund a series of story telling events in connection with “Scotland’s Year of Storytelling” this has also helped bring people to the Museum.

The garden at the rear has had a face lift thanks to Catherine Latham, our resident gardener from Aberargie. I thank her for her dedication and managing to turn round a wilderness in to a very attractive display of flowers and medicinal plants.

I would like to sincerely thank all our volunteers for their hard work, if it wasn’t for them this four star visitor attraction would not exist.
