From prehistoric times to the present day, artefacts, documents and photographs illustrate the history of Dollar.
This year, our 35th, we open from Saturday 8th April 2023 with new exhibition material. Our popular working models of Dollar Railway Station and the Dollar Mine have been combined into a fantastic new single large working model of the Railway Station and Mine, but also showing some underground Mine Workings – a fabulous new permanent exhibit. Local artists’ work is also being exhibited and you can trace our local history from the earliest of times along our Dollar History Time-Line. There’s plenty for adults and children, and our shop is open too!
