Montrose Museum opened in 1842 and was one of the first purpose built museums in Scotland. It was designed to look like a ‘temple of learning’, in a neo-classical style, with Ionic columns on either side of the doorway. Inside are a series of displays housed in the spacious atrium, mezzanine and galleries, that show the life of the town.
The collection includes archaeological finds from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, the History of the Burgh of Montrose and stones from what was the Pictish civilisation of Circhen, that is now Angus.
In the mezzanine you can see an impressive collection of model boats, taxidermy of local wildlife and a small Geology display of semi-precious agate stones.
