Montrose Natural History and Antiquarian Society

Who we are ...

Welcome to Montrose Natural History and Antiquarian Society. The 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 £12.00 which entitles the member free entry to the monthly meetings. Meetings are held in Montrose Museum at 7:30 pm. 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.


The next talk is on Tuesday 10th November is called Piping pigs and groping mermaids: some newly discovered Patrick Paniter panels from Fetteresso by Jane Geddes, who is Professor of History of Art at Aberdeen University, specialising in the art of the Middle Ages. Her talk to MNHAS last year was very well received and it should be an entertaining evening.
