The Auld Kirk has a varied and exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and related events throughout the year, as well as events such as Festival of Museums.
6 April to 16 May
The Antonine Art Club Exhibition
The Antonine Artists formed in 2013 to encourage interest in the practical forms of art, develop skills, and provide a social forum. They meet each week in Milngavie to exchange advice and ideas while painting together using a variety of materials.
At the opening on the 6 April, ‘Willow Moon’ and friends will be performing a selection of Folk/Americana songs between 11am and 3pm outside (weather permitting).
Antonine artists will be in residence on selected dates during the exhibition – please call the museum for information: 0141 777 3013.
25 May to 20 June
West of Scotland Weavers, Spinners & Dyers
We are surrounded by nature, even in towns.
Nature often displays repeating patterns which provide inspiration for weaving and engaging the skills of our members.
Nature’s rich colour palette gives us great variety in choosing colours for our work.
Nature provides us with plant fibres and natural dyes, as well as the animal fibres that we spin.
(This group of textile enthusiasts meet regularly, from September to May, in Milngavie Community Education Centre.)
29 June to 22 August
The amazing ‘Collins’ collection of over 150 bizarre and curious gadgets and contraptions from the past, which are not only weird and wonderful, but mind-blowing for their ingenuity ,will be on show at the museum. The 1930s wrist direction finder, the sat-nav of the 1930s, the clockwork ‘teasmade’ from 1902, the chewing gum necklace holder from 1898 and the two person vacuum cleaner from 1912 will just be a few of the enthralling items you can see.
There is a small car park behind the museum which can be accessed via Peel Brae and additional parking is available behind the William Patrick Library on West High Street.
Tuesday to Saturday
10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm
Please note: The Auld Kirk Museum may be closed for installation or de-installation of exhibitions. Please telephone the museum on 0141 777 3013 to check opening times if visiting the museum outwith exhibition dates.
