Tea at the museum

MONTROSE Museum is welcoming the public back through its doors after its refurbishment with an afternoon tea this weekend.

On Saturday, staff will serve a variety of speciality teas while visitors will have the final chance to view the museum’s latest exhibition, The Sea Enriches, which features a selection of maritime art from the Angus Museums Collection, including paintings by Angus artists Edward Baird, J.W. Herald and William Lamb.

The museum recently re-opened after the council completed a programme of access improvements to the building and its upper floor.

The plans were approved by Historic Scotland to ensure that the museum, which is one of the oldest purpose-built museums in Scotland, retained its historic importance, symmetry and character.

Tea will be served from 2pm and admission is free.
