Across four galleries, permanent and temporary exhibitions reveal treasures from the Museum’s 112,000 item-strong collection, including fine and applied art, silver, textiles, furniture, chemistry and historic scientific instruments, all of which are recognised as collections of national significance by Museums Galleries Scotland. Subjects covered in each gallery include the medieval early history of the town and university, the history of the university across its life and some of the University’s achievements in the areas of the arts, divinity and science. There’s also a ‘learning loft’ for educational events, a gift shop and a viewing terrace with panoramic views over St Andrews Bay, while the Museum can be hired for private receptions and events.
