Donation of Objects

We are enormously grateful for all donations of objects that Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums has received over the years. These gifts, which include bequests, have enhanced our collection and contributed to the understanding of our rich heritage.

Our goal is to strengthen our collection by seeking to acquire works and artefacts that are:

  • Significant in the context of the collection
  • In good condition, bearing in mind their date of creation and medium
