Recently Hamish Johnston visited to work through the letters of the Rev. Dr George Gordon of Birnie, aided by the excellent catalogue - the brown book on the table - co-written by Susan Bennett, our former curator. Hamish is researching his great-great-grandfather, Matthew Forster Heddle, not only a famous mineralogist but also one of Scotland's earliest mountaineers. We look forward to Hamish's talk on Thursday 4th October.

It may be miserable out but there’s plenty to smile about at Elgin Museum! We have lots of little activities for little people from a dinosaur maze, dressing up, games and regularly updated trails and quizzes. So if splashing through puddles is wearing thin why not pop along and see us?
