In the interests of the well-being of our volunteers, visitors and staff, it is unfortunately not possible for us to open for the 2020 Season. 

We apologise for any disappointment this may cause, but we hope that you will continue to enjoy “visiting” Elgin Museum from home through our digital content which we plan to continue to develop throughout our closed period. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Elgin Museum in 2021.   

Although we will be closed for the 2020 Season, you can enjoy a visit to the Museum “from home” with activities & quizzes on our Education and Outreach page, through our YouTube channel, the Museum Musings blog, via our social media feeds, and our online jigsaws. Find and follow us now! (or click on the logos below). If you’ve enjoyed our “Virtual Museum” please consider making a donation via our PayPal donations page to show your support.

You can now also support Elgin Museum by choosing “The Moray Society” as your chosen charity on AmazonSmile. Every time you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisation of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon, but is accessed via a different website – same products, same prices, same service, but you get help Elgin Museum every time you buy! So why not help us out while you shop – its as simple as selecting The Moray Society as your chosen charity.
