Education and Outreach



While the Museum is closed due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation we will be sharing activities, insights and star objects with you via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

At Elgin Museum we want to help the people of Moray and visitors here to engage with the history of the area for their entertainment, education and enjoyment. It is key for us to work with the 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.

Links to activities will be added below throughout our closed period. If you’d like to find out more, or would like copies of activities sent out to you, please contact us by email:
