Museums of the University of St Andrews

The University of St Andrews is Scotland's first university, founded in 1413. Like the University, its Museums are rooted in and draw inspiration from this 600-year history of research and teaching, and the pursuit of knowledge for the common good.

The Museums' collections are of national and international interest and importance and consist of around 115,000 artefacts and specimens.

Museum collections are featured at the Wardlaw Museum and the Bell Pettigrew Museum, stored and studied in a dedicated Collections Centre, displayed across the University campus, and lent for exhibition nationally and internationally.

From Monday 23 March, the Museums team will be bringing you #CultureAtHome and a whole host of weekly online workshops through Facebook, wherever you are!

We hope that you can tune in and join us!

Coming soon to the Wardlaw Museum: Philip Colbert: The Death of Marat and the Birth of the Lobster
