The Old Town House, built in 1788 has been used for a number of purposes throughout the years, from its original purpose as the administrative centre for the Old Aberdeen Burgh council, to a Masonic Lodge and a library. The University of Aberdeen King’s Museum moved into the building in 2012, displaying the University’s vast collection through changing temporary exhibitions.
