20 West High Street

The Meffan Museum & Art Gallery displays objects, photographs and archive material relating to the history of Forfar, as well as contemporary art exhibitions.

The museum has a stunning display of Pictish stones. Visitors can explore “the Forfar Story” by taking a walk through time down an old cobbled street called the Vennel: once there, they can see a cobbler at work, a handloom weaver working on linen, a clockmaker and a baker making the famous Forfar bridies. Visitors can also see a recreation of the sweetie shop owned by Forfar’s greatest benefactor Peter Reid, famous for Forfar Rock, before finding themselves in the crowd witnessing the execution of a woman accused of witchcraft.

The lively Meffan Art Gallery has an ever changing exhibitions programme, bringing the work of a range of contemporary artists to Forfar.

Disabled access throughout.
