My hometown of Stirling has a small, what I would call intimate, art gallery & museum. It's actually quite good and free to visit. There is an interesting permanent exhibition "The Stirling Story" that is worth taking the time to see along with their rotating special collections.
The gallery itself was opened in 1874 and at that time was known as the Smith Institute. It has a wee lecture hall that I had the good fortune to attend a meeting at about the history of policemen.
If you get to feeling a wee bit peckish or thirsty then try out the cafe.
I like their shop :) I had to hold on fast to my purse or every penny would have been spent !!!!!! What can I say I looooove postcards and also collect genealogy/local history information.
Don't forget to say "Hi" to Hamish.
