King's Museum, University of Aberdeen

King's Museum

King’s Museum lies at the heart of the University's Old Aberdeen campus. As well as being Scotland's newest museum, it may also be the oldest as its origins lie in a museum collection established in King's College in 1727.

King’s Museum has exhibitions changing every few months to display these collections, some involving students and academic staff collaborating with the museum to bring recent research to a wider audience. With a service for schools, evening lectures and other events, such as the annual ‘Night at the Museum’, the museum is a place where objects and ideas are explored in ways that would have been inconceivable to those who have collected and curated the collection over the past centuries.
The museum is a friendly place, where passers-by, students, staff and tourists can drop in for a break; a place of stimulation and reflection in the middle of the busy campus.

Growing Up: different journeys

Growing Up: different journeys

  • 13 June — 30 November 2018 *on now

If there is one common theme regarding growing up it’s that everyone gets older and everyone does it differently. In the year of Young People, the newest exhibition in King’s Museum explores this idea and the process of growing up in different cultures.

The University of Aberdeen Museums’ ethnographic and art collections, along with interactive activities, will encourage visitors to rediscover their own youth while building and understanding of the cultural and historical differences of childhood.
