As part of a £5.2-million refurbishment programme, of which £110,000 was generously donated by Braehead Shopping Centre specifically for the Museum, Renfrew Town Hall and Museum has been completely transformed into a fully modernised community venue which still retains its appeal of tradition and heritage. The Museum was officially opened on 28th January 2012 by Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon along with Provost Celia Lawson and Derek Mackay, MSP. Visitors to the museum will be treated to a truly rich and interactive experience as the story of the town is presented from Medieval times until the present day, using objects, pictures, film and people’s own words. The Museum is based on the elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water.
