An introduction to the museums on campus

***Please note that the Zoology Museum, Sir Duncan Rice Gallery and Wolf Reading Room are currently closed to help protect visitors and staff.

There are three museums on campus. The Gallery in the Sir Duncan Rice Library and King's Museum (in the Old Aberdeen Town House) have exhibitions changing every few months, while the Zoology Museum is the only large, international exhibition of zoological specimens in the north of Scotland.

Discover what's going on at the University Museums by following the blog, or visit the University of Aberdeen’s Museums and Special Collections online exhibitions which include virtual versions of historic exhibitions to the most recent show in the Gallery.
