Marischal Museum was founded as the University’s Anthropological Museum in 1786. The Museum lies in the University of Aberdeen’s Marischal College, the second-largest granite structure in the world. It now contains major collections of Scottish archaeological and historical material, foreign ethnography, and most notably Egyptian and Classical antiquities, numismatics, militaria and paintings, that rank alongside the largest in Scotland. Today, the care of these collections is enhanced by a purpose-built conservation laboratory. The museum has an active schools service, evening lecture programme and welcomes enquiries about study access.
To ensure there has been no change to the opening times or details on this page, please check with the museum directly before visiting.
The Entire Museum Collection cared for by the University of Aberdeen is a Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland
