Annan Museum

Annan Museum

This family friendly museum houses a permanent exhibition on the history of Annan and the surrounding area.

A fascinating journey through time takes visitors from the prehistoric period up to the era of nuclear fission. Displays include costume, First World War memorabilia, town regalia and a remarkable collection of paintings depicting Annan and the Solway shore. Look out for a 4000 year old Bronze Age burial urn, mummified baby crocodiles and the 110 year old piece of chocolate!


NEW FOR 2019: Star objects to be added to the museum for 2019: London to Glasgow stagecoach jack, communion ware relating to Annan Old Parish Church and recent archaeological finds awarded to Dumfries and Galloway Council Museums via Treasure Trove.
