The museum contains local history exhibitions, works by local artist David Waterson and a model of Brechin as it was in the 1820s. It gives visitors the chance to explore the history of the town and its people, with a rich collection of objects, photographs, archival material and ephemera.
Displays focus on Brechin’s ancient beginnings as an ecclesiastical city of great note. Dioramas include a cleric in the Cathedral scriptorium and the cattle rustler John Gall, in the Black Hole of Brechin.
