Meffan Museum & Art Gallery

The Meffan Museum & Art Gallery was built in 1898 as a bequest from the daughter of Provost Meffan. Two of its galleries are devoted to art exhibitions, which are changed every month to show the work of a range of contemporary Scottish artists.

Two more galleries explore “The Forfar Story” with a collection of Pictish Stones. Also on display are the Burgh Measures, from the time when the town and country were responsible for keeping standard measures to ensure fair trading practices.

The museum and gallery collects photographs, objects and archive material relating to the history of Forfar. The collection consists of several thousand drawings, objects and paintings that have been gifted or bequeathed to the museum.
