Visit the Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre
The Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre aims to show the human side of the Air Stations past with a collection of contemporary photographs, artefacts and memorabilia. These not only tell of the history of the airfield but also the story of the men and women who served there and those who lived in the area. The Heritage Centre ensures that future generations will remember their service.
We are an independent, fully accredited, museum run entirely by volunteers and in 2014 we were proud to received The Queens Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award for volunteer groups in the UK.
You only have to read our reviews on TripAdvisor to be assured that you will receive a warm and friendly welcome. The Heritage Centre has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in both 2015 and 2016. It is consistently shown as the No.1 visitor attraction in Montrose and highly rated in Angus.
There is something for everyone regardless of age including local and aviation history dating back over 100 years to 1913. That was less than 10 years after the first powered flight by the Wright Brothers in America. Aircraft were a rare and fascinating sight with pilots as famous as film stars. Come and see our full size replica B.E.2a aircraft as flown by No.2 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps, when they were the first to land in France at the start of World War One.
Children are especially welcome and will find lots to see and experience. Education and heritage are very important to us and unlike many visitor attractions we will never charge admission for children.
