Tea at the museum

Have your say

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.
