In the meantime, you can view our collection online.


If you would like to learn about life as a lighthouse keeper on a remote, wave-lashed rock in the North Sea, or as a sailor working from Montrose harbour, if you wonder about cattle rustling and the Black Hole of Brechin, or if you are fascinated by art, then come and visit our Museums & Galleries.

ANGUSalive Museums are also a great source of tourist information and we are proud to be part of iKNOW and a VisitScotland information partner, sharing the local amenities and attractions of Angus.

All of the ANGUSalive Museums & Galleries have free admission.
