King’s Museum is run by the University of Aberdeen and opened in April 2011. Whilst the museum is relatively new, its origins lie in a museum collection that was in existence in King’s College in 1727.
The University’s collections are amongst the biggest and most important in Scotland and has been awarded the status of a ‘Recognised Collection of National Significance’ by Museum Galleries Scotland.
The exhibitions change every month in order for it to display these collections, with students and academic staff working with the museum to bring recent research to a larger audience. The museum also runs a service for schools, evening lectures and other events, such as a ‘Night at the Museum’, which is held annually.
