Meffan museum panorama

Situated in the centre of the market town of Forfar come and explore the Forfar Story where smells and sounds guide you through the narrow and cobbled recreation of The Vennel. Peer inside several small shops including; Peter Reid's sweet shop, a knockmaker's workshop and a baker's shop, which of course offers the obligatory 'Forfar Bridie', a meat and pastry delicacy. You can also learn about Forfar's witches and examine a collection of enigmatic sculptured stones, in the Pictish Stones display.

Offering a diverse programme of art exhibitions, the museum's art gallery showcases the work of local, national and internationally-renowned artists. Details of the current exhibition can be found at

The museum collects objects, photographs, artist works and archive material relating to the history of Forfar. ANGUSalive cares for the Angus Council art collection; further information is available on the fine art collection page.
