Culture Perth and Kinross care for over half a million objects in our nationally significant collection reflecting different aspects of our culture, identity and history. From paintings, photography and decorative art through social history and archaeology to the extensive natural history collections, there is something to appeal to all tastes and interests. This is just a few of the highlights from our extensive collections.
Since opening in 1910, Perth City Hall has hosted a rich cultural tapestry of festivals, performances and events.
This collection includes material from City Hall memory days alongside photographs from the Perthshire Advertiser, Alex Cowper and Louis Flood collections.
Much of this material has been produced by the MyMuseum volunteers who were involved in digitisation and cataloguing.

J D Fergusson was one of the most important and influential artists in Britain in the first half of the 20th century. Born in Edinburgh, with ancestral links to Perthshire, he spent much of his career in France and is now most associated with the Scottish Colourist group. The Fergusson Gallery holds his vast collection of artwork and associated archives, along with the archive of his lifelong companion, the pioneer of modern dance, Margaret Morris.
Over March and April 2022 Perth Museum hosted a placement with the University of the Highlands & Islands to create 3D models of archaeology. The goal was to capture and render 10 models over 10 days. 3D models enable us to explore objects in greater levels of detail, fostering an appreciation for their design and form.
