Provost Skene’s House
Provost Skene's House is being redeveloped as a new visitor attraction under the City Centre Masterplan.
The project will tell the story of entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, artists and sportspeople from Aberdeen and the North-east who have transformed our world.
They range from astronomer Sir David Gill, who mapped the stars, to Nobel Peace Prize winner Lord John Boyd Orr, who helped improve nutrition across the globe.
The Guestrow building, which dates from 1545, was named after one of Aberdeen's most famous residents, Lord Provost George Skene, who will also be celebrated.
