Museums & Galleries
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.
Discover our Museums & Galleries
Our Museums & Galleries are home to a fascinating collection of museum objects and artworks. Our collections include archaeology, social history artefacts, natural history, geology and ethnography. All the items in our collection have local or national significance, and each has its own story to tell.
Our ANGUSalive permanent exhibitions bring to life the different characters and fascinating histories of each of our towns. Complemented by a changing temporary exhibition programme, there's always a new story to discover in our museums.
ANGUSalive cares for an extensive collection of fine art for the people of Angus and our visitors. Our flagship visual arts gallery is The Meffan Museum & Art Gallery in Forfar which has a changing programme of exhibitions throughout the year, primarily showing the work of contemporary Scottish artists.
