Winter Night at the Museums

In January, the University Museums opened their doors to the public for our first big event of the year.


The Zoology Museum welcomed over 1000 visitors over the course of the evening

Winter Night at the Museums saw over 1000 visitors of all ages coming to visit the Zoology Museum, King’s Museum, the Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre and the Sir Duncan Rice Library.

We had a great time welcoming everyone into the museums on this wintry night to take part in the activities on offer!

The night was a great success across all the venues that opened their doors to the public and we were able to offer a variety of activities for visitors.

We have many more public events coming up this year ranging from family events to late openings for over-18s only. Keep an eye out for our next Museum Late: ‘Ice and Fire’… Ice & Fire 1_1 1000px


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.
