Aberdeen City Council has approved a £1.5 million refurbishment of the city’s Provost Skene’s House - a popular tourist attraction.
The historic building will showcase the talents of some of the most famous names to come from the Granite City - from footballer Dennis Law and singer Annie Lennox to the likes of famous architect Archibald Simpson.
Leading politicians claim the refurb work will provide a major “culture boost” for the city.
Around £1 million of the money set aside by the local authority’s Finance, Policy and Resources Committee will go towards a new ‘interpretation centre’.
This will feature “family friendly” digital interactive and audio features alongside more traditional museum displays.
The remaining 500,000 pounds will go on essential building works.
