Montrose Museum and Art Gallery

We are loving our adventures in Montrose and this week, we are visiting Montrose Museum and Art Gallery.  The Museum was opened in 1842 by Montrose Natural History Antiquarian Society and it was one of the first purpose built Museums in Scotland.  The Museum is designed in a neo classical style and is built of pink sandstone.

Travel through the Museum, exploring the history and art of the town.  It takes you on a journey back to the earliest archaeological finds which include Pictish Stones and Bronze Age Swords.  Learn about the Jacobite uprisings and find out about the harbour.  The staff are very friendly and there is a great collection of artefacts.

Entry is free and it is easy to park on the road round about the Museum.  Open from 10.00-5.00pm Tuesday to Saturday and located just behind the High Street.  It is such a lovely Museum and is definitely worthy of a visit if you are in Montrose – a great way to find out about the history of this lovely town!
