High Street, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, AB24 3EN

    Welcome to University of Aberdeen Museums

    The University of Aberdeen’s Museums include King’s Museum and the University’s Zoology Museum. The museums can claim to be Scotland’s oldest, with records of museums and collections as far back as the late 17th century. Thanks to their status as a Recognised Collection of national significance, the Zoology Museum’s displays are currently being improved, while King’s Museum hosts changing exhibitions drawn from across the collections, particularly those formerly in Marischal Museum. Visitors are warmly welcomed to the museums, and there are no charges for admission.  Marischal College now houses the Museums Collections Centre, caring for and conserving many of the collections.
