Aberdeen’s oldest house in line for £1.5m overhaul
September 22 2016
This will see a new interpretation centre featuring digital and audio displays alongside historic artefacts with vital repairs also being carried out to the fabric of the 16th century pile.
Finance committee convener Councillor Willie Young commented: “This £1.5m investment from the Council will help preserve Provost Skene’s House and its magnificent interior for generations to come, while creating an even bigger draw for residents and visitors.
“The exhibition has the potential to become a tremendous education resource and would service a number of Masterplan objectives, not least positioning Aberdeen as a city of global significance and influence.
Provost Skene’s House is currently closed to the public pending completion of the Marischal Square complex in July 2017, with developer Muse also contributing £500k toward essential upkeep of the landmark.
