Journeys – 600 Years of the University of St Andrews

This exhibition aims to celebrate the University’s long and distinguished history, placing key events in the context of other world events and examining this history from the point of view of students (both past and present), staff and the general St Andrews community.

The exhibition is laid out in four display cases, with one theme per case being examined:

  • Journeys Through Time
  • Journeys Around the World
  • Journeys of the Imagination
  • Armchair Journeys

Objects from across the University’s collections and from a broad range of time periods are displayed to help visitors examine these themes, and personal responses to (or recollections of) these objects form a basis to help visitors connect with them.

Two large wall spaces contain a timeline of University events, placed in context of Scottish and world events and a wall graphic based on benefactors to the University.
