Wardlaw Museum

The University of St Andrews is Scotland’s first university, founded in 1413. Like the University, its Museums are rooted in and draw strength and inspiration from this 600-year history of research and teaching, and the pursuit of knowledge for the common good. The Wardlaw Museum takes visitors inside the University of St Andrews, with four new thematic galleries on its groundbreaking research and global impact. Displays showcasing its extraordinary art, history, science and natural history collections are complemented by an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and events. With interactive experiences for all ages, and a beautiful sea view from the terrace and garden, the Museum is a major new cultural space for St Andrews.

The Wardlaw Museum is currently under redevelopment and is due to open in Spring 2020.

Opening hours: Monday – Friday 11am – 7pm, Saturday – Sunday 10am – 5pm

Location: Wardlaw Museum, 7a The Scores, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9AR
