Recognition Fund enables work to begin on ethnographic collections from the Pacific!

We have been awarded a Recognition Fund grant by the Scottish Government! The project will focus on the ethnographic collections from the Pacific Ocean. We will improve the collections documentation and storage. We also hope to take images of as many objects as possible to share on our online image database.

It follows the Pacific Collections Review funded by the Museums Association Esmee Fairbairn Trust, and our collaboration with the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Fijian Arts Project.

We can’t wait to get started and will keep you informed throughout. Here are just a few of the amazing objects from the Pacific in the University’s museum collections

About uoamuseums

The University of Aberdeen's Museums include King’s Museum and the University's Zoology Museum. The museums can claim to be Scotland's oldest, with records of museums and collections as far back as the late 17th century. Thanks to their status as a Recognised Collection of national significance, the Zoology Museum’s displays are currently being improved, while King's Museum hosts changing exhibitions drawn from across the collections, particularly those formerly in Marischal Museum. Visitors are warmly welcomed to the museums, and there are no charges for admission. Marischal College now houses the Museums Collections Centre, caring for and conserving many of the collections.
