Festivals & Heritage

Elgin Museum is Scotland’s oldest independent museum with collections housed in a Grade A listed building at the east end of the High Street. Visitors will find objects from all around the world, but especially from Moray, dating from before the dinosaurs to the present day.

Elgin Museum’s fossil collection is recognised to be of National Significance, with more than 900 local fish and reptile fossil specimens, and a similar number of minerals and miscellaneous fossils. The museum boasts archaeological collections which covers Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Pictish, Romano-British and Medieval finds. There are many fascinating artefacts connected with local history and the Moray region in general, and the photographic archives date back to the early Victorian period. The Museum also has a rich collection of Oil and Watercolour paintings, and prints.
