Gallery of Memories

Aberdeen Art Gallery, the Remembrance Hall and Cowdray Hall are currently being redeveloped. Upon re-opening, the Remembrance Hall balcony will have digital exhibitions exploring memories about war and conflict, focusing on people who live or lived in Aberdeen.

Would you like to share any local stories, photographs, poems, drawings or artefacts relating to times of conflict? If so, we are collecting digitised versions which may be displayed in the gallery.
