Perth Museum and Art Gallery Perth
Born in Perth in 1915, Jessie Valentine was a force to be reckoned with within the Womens golf scene of the 1930's to 1950's.
Her lifelong golfing career with championship wins at home and abroad led to her becoming a Scottish sporting legend. Awarded an MBE for services to golf she turned professional in the 1960s using her skills to design golf clubs for women.
Furthermore, she was amongst 50 other sporting legends awarded with an inaugural place in the Scottish Sport Hall of Fame in 2002.
From portraits and photographs to meteorites and Miss Ballantyne’s salmon there is always a fascinating array of objects from the collections on display complemented by in-gallery activities for families. Enjoy discovering about local history in our Beginnings Gallery, exploring the natural history of the area in Wild and Wonderful, or view a range artworks. Come regularly to see our changing programme of temporary exhibitions which offer something for everyone.
Open from 10:00 – 17:00, Tuesday to Sunday.
