The Atholl Palace Museum

Open 7 days a week to hotel guests and the general public the museum charts the history of the hotel from when it opened as a Hydropathic establishment in 1878 through to its reopening after World War II and beyond.

There are tales of bankruptcy, colourful entrepreneurs, unusual and torturous spa treatments, and evacuees turning hotel to school. Our museum also delves behind the scenes of life for Victorian hotel servants including maids, porters,chauffeurs and gardeners, many of whom lived in the servants’ quarters where the museum stands.

The Atholl Palace Museum is located on the lower ground floor of the Atholl Palace Hotel, adjacent to the Lavender Spa. The hotel's games room is located within the museum, beside the AV room.
