Who We Are

The Montrose Natural History and Antiquarian Society is based at Montrose Museum and was formed in 1836, making it the second oldest Antiquarian Society in Scotland. It provides a focal point for those interested in the local history, archaeology, and the natural world of Montrose and the surrounding area. The main activity for the Society centres around a series of talks that take place on the second Tuesday of every month between September and April. These talks are open to all, not just to our members. To see the full programme of talks for the season, please click on Programme above.
