New King’s Museum opens in Old Aberdeen

A new museum in the heart of Old Aberdeen, opposite the historic King’s College Chapel, opened on 18 April.

The opening exhibition is titled “100 Curiosities”. It is inspired by the ‘History of the World in 100 objects’ project of the British Museum and BBC, but also the title of an early 19th century catalogue of  ‘the principal curiosities natural and artificial preserved in the museum’.
