Museums and Art Galleries in AberdeenThe Marischal College in Aberdeen
Scotland's third largest city has been thriving since the discovery of North Sea Oil. It has a closely packed city centre made up of dark granite buildings that can make it a overcast and gloomy place at times. However there is a charm and vitality about the city that is reflected in its restaurants and night-life. Union Street is the city's main artery and is a mile long and built on pillars. North-east of the city centre on the banks of the river Don stands the ancient suburb of Old Aberdeen with its fortified cathedral, cobbled streets and houses that date from the 15th Century.
As you would expect from a large, prosperous city, there are plenty of Museums, Art Galleries and other culture to be found. In addition to the attractions linked below, Private House Stays recommends the following for your consideration: Provost Skenes House, Glover House, Gordon Highlanders Regimental Museum, The Blairs Museum, Tolbooth Museum, and Peacock Visual Art Gallery
