Our new exhibition for 2018 is entitled ‘Birds and Wirds’.  It will be a celebration of our fabulous feathered friends and will also take a wee keek at the Scots’ language.

We have a varied collection of specimens to display – many collected in Victorian times, from Little Auks, Humming birds and Hoopoes – to Golden Pheasants, Pelicans and Capercaillie.

How many can we fit in the case?


Our school holiday family drop-in sessions will run as usual on Wednesday mornings 10am-12pm with some ‘birdy’ themed crafts and there will be some beautiful new ‘bird’ dressing up costumes for the children to try on.

We also hope that our ‘Tortiphant’ sculpture, a unique and eye catching icon for the Museum will have arrived and be ready to welcome visitors when the Museum opens on Tuesday 3rd April.

Looking forward to a busy season!
