Perth Museum and Art Gallery

This venue has a rich historical background. It was founded in 1784, and within no time, the Antiquarian Society of Perth became the Literary and Antiquarian Society of Perth. Things stayed that way until 1932, when the Perthshire Natural History Museum was added. Nowadays, it is home to over half a million objects, both local and international, and it has a Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland.

All exhibition spaces and galleries are closed to the public from January to April 2023.

The current gift shop, coffee bar, lecture theatre and Messy Museum activity space will remain open with limited hours for customers and special events.

Following a public consultation, it was revealed that the new name for Perth City Hall will be Perth Museum. The current building on George Street was renamed Perth Art Gallery.
