Marischal Museum


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.
