Elgin Museum  Photos from the collections and events at Scotland’s oldest independent museum. Elgin, Moray. Closed for winter but still busy behind closed doors!

Blue skies! What a glorious day in Elgin today 🔅🔆🔅 You can see we’ve still got scaffolding up but everyone is working hard so that it’s gone for opening on the 28th April! #hardgraftandfingerscrossed

Ghosts of exhibitions past...
There’s been some serious spring cleaning going on while we’ve been closed - it’s amazing what’s turned up! Can you spot any familiar faces in this old display? #ElginMuseum #museum #elgin #museumschangelives #embraceElgin #welovehistory #morayspeyside

Floors down, shelves up - things are really picking up a gear at the Museum as we get ready to welcome you all on Saturday 28th April and we can’t wait! Thanks to all our volunteers who are going above and beyond to get things done #yourock #bendattheknee 🙈 #ElginMuseumRocks #ElginMuseum #museum #elgin #museumschangelives #embraceElgin #welovehistory #morayspeyside

Feeling the Friday 13th angst? Come along to the museum side hall between 1-3pm today and counter the bad juju by making some lucky charms! Free, all welcome, just drop in!

Some serious concentrating going on here! We all now know about cropmarks and what they can tell us about the archaeology that lies beneath! (This lot WERE messy! 😆)

A bit of a wider angle on the Harrow Inn Close marriage stone - couldn’t get far enough back to get the whole thing in. It’s the close between Clark’s & M&Co right in the middle of town @mcbride5030 - I didn’t think to take a view up it, it’s quite odd to see something so ornate poking through the harling!

Some quick detecting for @mulderiewood - looks like your picture is a marriage stone!
