King’s Museum – Old Town House

Old Aberdeen Town House, the gateway to the University of Aberdeen’s King’s Campus, was built in 1788-89 and remains an important landmark in the city today. Featuring classic Scottish architecture, the Old Town House was the focal point of the Burgh and, while no longer serving its original purpose, is now home to King’s Museum, having been restored by the university. The museum itself opened in 2011 and now boasts a collection established in King’s College in 1727 – among the largest and most important in Scotland. King’s Museum also has a calendar of regularly changing exhibitions and events, making it popular among students, locals and tourists.
