Denny Tank Museum Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting museum with top notch, knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in machines, ships and boats, engineering, drafting, architecture, or design. There are also interactive displays for the kids. Worth a visit!
I visited this place last as i love boats. Got a nice cafe. One of the staff showed me around. Very interesting. I learned a lot. Bought a model lighthouse to take home. Recommend.
Fascinating place if you are interested in ships. Very welcoming. Small cafe inside
A unique piece of maritime history. A working hydrodynamic testing tank and the story behind shipbuilding in Dumbarton.
Great staff and food, an absolute for full Scottish breakfast.
