The Dunbar Town House Museum and Gallery has been the focus of town life since the 16th century.

With a witch's hat tower and a bell, clock and sundials the building, which is filled with changing historical and art exhibitions as well as a local history display area, is very distinctive. Take a guided tour where you can visit the Council Chamber and atmospheric jail cell. Friendly staff are also on hand to tell you about the history of the town and building, or answer any questions you may have.

On the upper floors of the building is a community room used for council and community group meetings and can also be rented out for meetings, civil ceremonies and other functions.
