NS4075 : The Denny Tank Museum

taken 10 years ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

The Denny Tank Museum
The Denny Tank Museum
I know this building as the Denny Tank Museum, which is its invariable local name (after NS4075 : The Denny Tank), but those from outwith the area will know it as the Dumbarton branch of the Scottish Maritime Museum; it is the latter name that appears on signs outside (and on) the building. My picture shows the building just after a recent revamp; by way of comparison, NS4075 : Maritime Museum, Dumbarton shows the same building before that work was carried out.

The museum is located at the eastern end of NS3975 : Castle Street, Dumbarton.

In both pictures, NS4075 : The steam engine from the PS Leven is visible on the right.

In the present photograph, the more distant brick tower on the left is the NS3975 : Remains of Ballantine's Distillery. The tower of the old burgh hall is visible to the right of the museum.
The Denny Tank Museum

The local name for the Dumbarton branch of the Scottish Maritime Museum.
