Meffan Museum & Art Gallery, in the centre of Forfar, is both a local history museum and an art gallery. A diverse programme of art exhibitions, across the full year, brings the work of local, national and internationally-renowned artists to Forfar.
Two galleries are devoted to the exhibition programme. Details of the current exhibition can be found on Facebook - The Meffan Gallery.
Within the museum space, you can explore the Forfar Story by wandering through a recreation of an old narrow cobbled street, called The Vennel, and you can peer inside several small shops. There is Peter Reid's sweet shop, a knockmaker's workshop and a baker's shop, with displays of bread and bridies.
You can also examine several enigmatic sculptured stones, in a Pictish stones display.
Contact the museum for Christmas and New Year opening hours. Groups may visit by appointment out-with normal opening hours.
