this is a smallish museum but definitely worth a visit for anyone with time to spend in museum. Enjoyed the natural life exhibits and a special exhibition on a now lost local community.

Delighted with this peaceful and welcoming place. The collection is not large, but it is of high quality and very well presented. The older oil paintings in particular (starting with Cranach) are very well lit indeed, and may be enjoyed in their full splendour. The areas devoted to wildlife and geology are also very well done. Some of the material is appropriately interactive - for instance, you can touch particular switches and the sounds made by particular animals are emitted. The shop area and café are also pleasant. Admission is free, and for anyone in the vicinity I would commend the Museum very highly. All in all we were left with very positive impressions and will be glad to return.

Excellent story-telling for this part of Scotland. The complicated geology of Perthshire and Kinross is explained well. Great selection of childrens' pocket-money ideas in the gift shop. Before planning a visit, check on which days it is open. Free to get in, but if you enjoyed your stay, there's a banknote donation box awaiting you when you leave.

Can't really complain given that it's free, but not a huge amount to see inside and not much of a visitor journey through the museum. Worth a look if you're nearby though.

Small museum with regularly changing artifacts. Free entry and children's educational area which needs updating.

I confess, the Museum and Art Gallery was second choice because the Cathedral was closed. However, the art gallery has some sublime paintings of fungi by Beatrix Potter and the museum bit casts an interesting light on the history of Perth.
