The museum tells the story of Montrose and its people - from the earliest archaeological finds to the gallant Marquis of Montrose and the Jacobite uprisings, to the harbour and maritime trade. The museum hosts works from Angus Council's collections of paintings and sculptures, as cared for by ANGUSalive, visiting artist exhibition and offers afternoon talks, children's activities and occasional evening events.

Opening in 1842, by Montrose Natural History and Antiquarian Society, the museum was one of the first purpose-built museums in Scotland and houses a series of displays in the neo-classical building's spacious atrium, mezzanine and galleries and was designed to look like a true temple of learning, with iconic columns on either side of the doorway and MUSEUM written above the lintel in elegant gold lettering.
