Old Aberdeen Town House has not always housed King’s Museum and the building has had a long past. The building was re-built in 1788 and acted as a meeting place for the Burgh Council, a Court and a Prison before housing many other uses! We are open Tuesday-Saturday 11.30am-4.30pm, Come along and see this historic building!

Collection Highlight: These Icelandic Spars made it possible to find and track the sun on a cloudy day by polarizing the light and revealing the optical phenomenon, Haidinger’s brush. This allowed people to be able to tell the time of day, before the invention of clocks, even when the sun was not clear and Calcite crystals such as these are thought to have been used by the Vikings for navigation. Come along and see them in our current exhibition at King’s Museum!
