Tain & District Museum and Clan Ross Centre is a recognised Scottish Charity and has been in existence since 1966. It is governed by a board of 6 Trustees who are ably assisted by 20 volunteers. Funds to support the museum are raised through charges to the Pilgrimage and Museum, through sales in the shop, from sales tables at local events, donations from the public and grants, most notably from Highland Council.

The Museum Collection consists of artefacts relating to the social history of the area, documents, photographs and a particularly fine collection of Tain Silver. Full registration under Phase 2 of the Museums & Galleries Commission Registration Scheme was achieved in 1999.  Full Accreditation under the MLA's Museum Accreditation Scheme was achieved in 2009 with the 2013 Accreditation Return being successful.


Our latest news and activities.

Tain & District Museum is home to an extensive and varied collection of objects, photographs and archives of local, regional and national significance. Because of the relatively limited exhibition space, only a small proportion of the collection is on display at any one time. Our website allows us to make more of the Collection accessible to all.

We welcome Rosses from home and abroad. Find out about Clan Ross history and latest news of Clan activities.
