The Dunollie Stores: behind-the-scenes

Saturday 18th February 2023 at 12p.m. GMT

Follow our Tour Guide Flora MacLeod Swietlicki for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour. Only very few objects out of the 10 000 in our museum’s collection are on display at any given time. The rest are kept in safe, controlled environment to help preserve them for longer. Unfortunately, this means we can’t allow visitors to see them – unless – it’s on zoom!
