Discovery Centre

Project Lead: Tomintoul and Glenlivet Development Trust

What is the project?

Substantial refurbishment of the Tomintoul Museum and Visitor Information Centre to create a new visitor experience and community resource along with the development of office space forming the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Business Centre.

What are the main achievements?

  • Discovery Centre refurbished with museum displays and panels installed and open to the public.
  • Tomintoul and Glenlivet Business Centre created.
  • An evolving digital archive of museum objects including visitor printing facility. The archive stations will also be available for research and genealogy studies which our consultation exercises have highlighted as a popular activity among returning visitors and residents.
  • A community resource centre and multipurpose space filling a gap in the market for a small, flexible facility in a central location. This will provide an additional community benefit and generate additional income to make the centre financially viable.
  • Increase dwell time of visitors, both at the museum and within the Tomintoul and Glenlivet area as a whole.
