Friends of the Falconer Museum

The Friends of the Falconer Museum have produced an anthology entitled Science & Imagination: True Stories from the Falconer Museum to celebrate 150 years since the museum first opened to the public. The book explores the life and work of Forres-born botanist, geologist, palaeontologist, and polymath Hugh Falconer, alongside imaginative pieces inspired by this visionary scientist. Due consideration is given to the national and international importance of the museum and its collections; the book highlights Falconer’s continuing legacy, both at home and abroad, and connects the local community to its heritage in an informative and engaging manner.
