A Tourist Attractions in East Perthshire
The Museum of Abernethy was opened in May 2000 by Magnus Magnusson. In 2001 it was awarded four stars by the Scottish Tourist Board.
The building, which stands within the lands of the old Culdees monastery, dates from the eighteenth century. Originally consisting of a byre, stable and cattle rede, it was renovated during the 1990s to house the Museum. In keeping with the aim of preserving the building's heritage, some of the original features, such as the internal stone walls and an area of cobbled floor, have been left visible.
In addition to mounting exhibitions the museum also attempts to collect artefacts relating to the history of the parish, to record the memories of local inhabitants, and to build a photographic record of the village, its inhabitants and their various occupations.
