The museum is (slowly!) digitising it's collection and putting it online - you can see the new website here - grantownmuseumcollection.co.uk.
We are starting with photographs, and then will then move onto paintings & objects. We will be adding to it all the time, so check back regularly to see updated images.
If you have a photograph that you would like to add to our collection, please send it to -
We have also started using a new online cataloguing and publishing website where eventually all our collection will be available to view online. We have many more objects in our collection that we would ever be able to show, so eventually you will be able to see all that we have amassed. We only started this process a few weeks ago, so have about 100 objects photographed and uploaded so far, but we are adding to it all the time. It can be viewed here -
It's not just Grantown Museum on this website, you can also browse objects from other museums around the world.
Victorian ‘bustle’ wedding dress from the marriage of Miss Agnes Helen Gordon to Donald MacDougall, 6th June 1882. This local couple became shop owners in Grantown and had five sons, all of whom fought in World War One and returned. Three of the sons who had already emigrated, joined up from Canada, Malaya and Australia. Grantown’s High Street has an interesting history and as a market town is almost unique in the central Highlands with the number of varied shops and businesses in the Victorian period. When Donald died, Agnes took over the business and became a shop owner in her own right, holding a prominent position in Grantown society. The dress is beautifully made and is accompanied with its veil, train and stole. It is in an archetypically late Victorian in style.
