Welcome to The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum

The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum is home to one of the largest collections of material relating to the moving image in Britain. We are both an accredited public museum and an academic research facility and we hold a collection of over 85,000 items. Over 1,000 of our items are on display in our Galleries and are available to be viewed by the public.  

The museum is open again to the public  following the easing of coronavirus restrictions. We welcome you back to explore three centuries of moving image history. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm every day (except for closure between Christmas and New Year).

Leading film critic Mark Kermode visited the museum in Summer 2017 and made this film about us for his 'KermodeUncut' video blog.
