Tain & District Museum

The museum was opened in 1966 and is part of the Tain Through Time centre. Its first curator was Rosemary Mackenzie, who had gathered local material since the 1950s.

Some of the rarest items in the collection are pieces of silverware that were made in Tain, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They include, a Hugh Ross tot cup made between 1700 and 1710, a mid eighteenth century Hugh Ross pepper pot and a rare three-pronged fork and a gold signet ring by Alexander Stewart.

Every year, the museum holds a major exhibition and a smaller one for Archaeology Fortnight.
