Marischal Museum was a museum in Aberdeen, Scotland, specialising in anthropology and artifacts from cultures around the world. The museum was a part of the University of Aberdeen, situated at Marischal College, a grand neo-gothic building said to be the second-largest granite building in the world, displaying collections owned by the University. The museum is closed to the public, but now operates as the University of Aberdeen's museum collections centre.
The museum most notably housed examples of Egyptian and Classical antiquities, non-Western ethnography and pieces relating to Scottish prehistory and numismatics. The collections are part of the University of Aberdeen's museum collections which have been recognised as being of national significance by the Scottish Government.

One of the most gorgeous granite building in Aberdeen. If you are visiting, this place is a must for photos. During Christmas, there is a Christmas market, rides and a little ice skating rink just outside the doorstep.

Fabulous building, steeped in history. Would advise to go on one of the tours to see and learn more. Also useful when you have to sort things out with the council.

I thoroughly enjoy the upscaled and renovated Marischal college. If you are visiting Aberdeen it is worth a picture. Usually used during events such as light or sound festivals.

Great building - worth a visit. Check out the quad courtyard in the center - lovely sheltered place for a sandwhich and open to the public any time the Council is open.
