This is a wonderful small museum with an excellent collection of artefacts. The range covers prehistoric to Iron Age to modern! From the Picts to the Jacobites, and everything in between! I was lucky enough to visit during the fossil exhibition which was extremely interesting. I went in knowing nothing about the topic but left feeling I had learned something!... More

Love this place, and the ever changing exhibitions it houses, touching the history of the town and it's past inhabitants. There is always something interesting on, or a fantastic array of pictures, exhibits, and a wee shop to tap into your retail needs. Thank you again for a wonderful visit, and to the staff for a warm welcome....

This is a wonderful place to visit whether it be for half an hour or an hour. The exhibits range from neolithic artefacts to model ships and more. On the ground floor the museum area leads through to a room of artworks by local artists. On the first floor are more museum items and off this is a mezzanine floor... More

A small town museum but full of interesting local artefacts from Neolithic to modern times. Including articles of local manufacture. Had no time to look at the art. Also has a stuffed golden eagle and otter, came in very handy for visual reference when seeing a live Golden eagle two days later in Glen Clova in the Cairngorms.

We stopped here and spent a good a pleasant hour or so. The museum is on 2 levels and it also had information leaflets for the area. The road at the side of the building has a lane leading to the heart of the town centre and takes you to High Street, which is the widest street in Scotland, a... More

This is a great little museum, packed with interesting artefacts and pictures. It even contains an interesting Pictish Stone (the Inchbrayock Stone). Well worth a visit if you are in Montrose.

Outstanding presentation of exhibits in text and content. Probably the best I've seen for a local town museum. Geography, history and nature feature high on a well designed building. Note illustration of a model ship - a surprise awaits you. Give yourself plenty time, there is so much to see, learn and enjoy. A credit to Montrose, and to the... More

the Museum in Montrose is well worth a visit. Montrose as a very interesting historical past and the Museum has various artefacts from its past. The staff are friendly and very helpful.
