'The Friends' was formed to support the museum, following a public meeting on the 5th February 2004.  The Friends aim is to promote and support the development of our local museum at the Townhouse in Brechin's High Street . The Friends aim is to promote and support the development of our local museum at the Townhouse in Brechin's High Street. We are working in partnership with Angus Council to enable the development of Brechin Town House Museum and to complete the renovations to the Town House, which will preserve this important 'A' listed building for the benefit of the community. These renovations have seen the successful establishment of the museum in its new home and in time, the museum will be extended to utilise all parts of this fine building. The installation of a lift for disabled access to the upper exhibition spaces is included in the extensive renovation plans. The history and artefacts of  Brechin now have a dedicated home in the heart of the Ancient City and by joining 'The Friends' you can participate in Brechin Town House Museum.
