Dumfries Museum and Camera Obscura
Galloway Tourist Route
Located in a former windmill, Dumfries Museum and Camera Obscura is home to a wide range of historic artefacts and tells the story of Dumfries and surrounding Galloway. Climb up to the top to experience the camera obscura which was installed in 1836 and still works today. During good weather this optical instrument projects panoramas of the local area in a truly magical way.
While in Dumfries you may also wish to visit attractions relating to the poet Robert Burns, who lived in the town towards the end of his life, such as the Robert Burns Centre and Robert Burns House.
