Opened in 1842 by Montrose Natural History and Antiquarian Society, Montrose Museum tells the story of Montrose and its people, from the earliest archaeological finds to the Marquis of Montrose and the Jacobite uprisings, the harbour and maritime trade.  The museum was one of the first purpose-built museums in Scotland and houses its series of displays in the neo-classical building's spacious atrium, mezzanine and galleries.
