This beautiful venue is also the perfect location for your special day. Picture yourself walking down the aisle of this breathtaking building that resembles a castle straight out a fairytale.

Renfrew Museum

Located within Renfrew Town Hall, this fascinating museum is well worth a visit.

The four-star VisitScotland-awarded attraction tells the story of Renfrew’s past and present and commemorates the town’s 600 years as a Royal Burgh.

Small, but perfectly formed, you will be treated to a rich and interactive experience as the story of the former Royal Burgh of Renfrew is presented from medieval times until the present day.

The museum is based on the elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water.

Earth
This section looks at life in Renfrew over the centuries. Renfrew is known as the Cradle of The Stewarts because of its important historic royal connections. Images over the last 150 years including shops, houses and street scenes show how the town has changed over time.

Fire
This part of the museum focuses on the heavy industries in the area, such as boiler making at Babcocks – at one time, the largest boiler making factory in the world.

Air
This section shows the importance of Renfrew Airport both locally and in aviation history. Visitors can see a real Merlin engine from a Spitfire fighter built at Hillington.

Water
The town’s position on the River Clyde made Renfrew an important ship building centre producing ships which were exported all over the world.

Come and learn more about the incredible contribution Renfrew has made across the world. See how the local community, including Renfrew’s young people, contribute to making it the town it is today.
