MUSEUM NEWS

The Museum of Abernethy is now open for the summer season. We open from Wednesday through to Sunday from 2pm to 5pm. In addition to our First World War display, we are very fortunate to have our salmon coble 'Emma' refurbished and back on display. To compliment our fishy theme we have an array of fun children's activities suitable for all ages so please bring the family along for a visit. You can also still learn lots about the history of the Parish of Abernethy, the Romans and the Round Tower from our general local history displays. Remember it is free entry! We would also encourage people to write a comment on our Trip Advisor page to help promote the Museum.

We are also very pleased to have received a generous donation from HE Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz, Lord and Baron of Abernethy, GCMLJ, FRSA. We understand that His Excellency will be making a visit to the Museum at some point so we will be able to thank him in person.

The collections management team are always in the Museum on a Tuesday, so if you have local history queries or are interested in volunteering, this is a good day to get in touch. Please call the Museum on 01738 850889.

Lastly, a date for your diary. The Art Exhibition this year will be held in the Museum over two weekends 17-19 October and 24-26 October 2014. Wishing you a happy, sunny summer!
