We will be in touch with teachers about our high schools’ Coasts and Waters Art Competition and will announce how we will conclude that in due course.

At Elgin Museum we want to help the people of Moray and visitors here to engage with the history of the area for their own entertainment, education and enjoyment. It is a key for us to work with the region’s young people encouraging them to see their heritage as something accessible and relevant to them, something which encourages their growth as responsible citizens, confident individuals, successful learners and effective contributors.

We hope to be back offering a full range of free outreach, curricular visits and family activities as soon as it is safe to do so.


Elgin Museum is grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Robertson Trust for their support in making these activities possible.
