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.
Our museum is dog friendly, we welcome visitors with well-behaved dogs. We expect owners to pick up and dispose appropriately of any dog mess and to inform a member of our team, as soon as possible of an accidents or damage caused by the dog, on the premises.
We also ask that –
- Your dog is on a short lead and kept into your side at all times
- Your dog is not left on its own anywhere on the premises
- Your dog is not soaking wet when entering the premises, but be dried off before entering
- Your dog keeps all paws on the floor, to prevent any jumping up on displays or sitting on furniture
- You take your dog out of the museum if it becomes unsettled, barks repeatedly or causes upset to other visitors
