Growing Up: different journeys

If there is one common theme regarding growing up it’s that everyone gets older and everyone does it differently. In the year of Young People, the newest exhibition in King’s Museum explores this idea and the process of growing up in different cultures.

The University of Aberdeen Museums’ ethnographic and art collections, along with interactive activities, will encourage visitors to rediscover their own youth while building and understanding of the cultural and historical differences of childhood.
