Tain Museum

Details for Tain Museum

The Tain and District Museum is in Invernesshire in Scotland and is run by a very passionate band of trustees and volunteers and has Charity status. It came into being in 1996 and contains many artefacts local to Tain including its Silverware. Actually there are so many objects and photographs relating to Tain that they cannot all be displayed at the one time so their web site is the ideal location to follow up on after your visit to the museum itself.

The museum is also heavily steeped in the Scottish Clan of Ross and carries a lot of history re this particular Clan and the stories come from far and wide, so if your surname is a Ross, visit the museum and learn what makes you who you are, learn the history of your family, go back in time to another place, all so very interesting.

The Museum is obviously very much self - financing although they do get some help from the Highland Council. The Museum is open from April through to October and the shop sells many interesting books and maps as well as the usual gift selection and Jewellery. Visit the Pilgrimage Centre which is a visitors centre and tells the story of the pilgrimage to Tain, it seems Kings James the IV of Scotland was a frequent visitor to the shrine of St Duthac in his time.

Much of the Museum is wheel chair friendly but there are a few exceptions in certain places. So come and tread the same steps at King James and visit the Tain Museum, a truly invigorating experience.
