Provost Skene’s House is being redeveloped as a new visitor attraction. Work is due to start in summer 2019 and be completed by autumn 2020.
The project will tell the story of entrepreneurs, entertainers, scientists, artists and sporting champions from Aberdeen and the North-east who have transformed our world.
They include astronomer Sir David Gill, who mapped the stars; Nobel laureate Lord John Boyd Orr, who helped improve nutrition across the globe; operatic soprano Mary Garden, one of entertainment’s first global superstars; and football legend Denis Law.
Provost Skene’s House will include a “Hall of Heroes”, voted for by the public. For the full line-up, click PSH List.
The Flourmill Lane building, which dates from 1545, was named after one of Aberdeen’s most famous residents, Lord Provost George Skene, who will be among those celebrated.
