About Us

Grantown Museum and Heritage Trust

Grantown Museum is owned by Grantown Museum & Heritage Trust. Our friendly team consists of a professional manager, a curator and a group of dedicated volunteers who are always on-hand and willing to help with any queries

We have over 200 members, with a Board of Directors elected from the membership.
Members pay an annual subscription and help the museum with fundraising events and by volunteering in the shop and Tourist Information Point.

The museum is a major community initiative and remains an ongoing community project.
belltowerBurnfield House, home of the museum, was purchased in 1995 for £150,000, raised entirely from private sources. A further £300,000 was raised, with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We officially opened our doors to the public in April 1999.

The campanile outside Burnfield House was built to house the restored town bell in 2006 with funding provided by the Bulmer Trust.
