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.


Membership is open to anyone, the annual subscription being £15.00 which entitles the member free entry to all eight monthly meetings. Meetings are held in Montrose Museum at 7:30pm. Visitors are welcome at £3.00 per meeting. School age children are admitted free. Please contact us if you wish to find out more about joining.
