WITH THE GIFT OF GLENCAIRN, THE FORMER HOME OF RAYMOND AND MILDRED PITCAIRN, AND RAYMOND PITCAIRN'S PERSONAL ART COLLECTIONS TO THE ACADEMY OF THE NEW CHURCH IN 1980, THE ACADEMY MUSEUM'S COLLECTIONS WERE MERGED WITH THOSE OF THE PITCAIRN FAMILY AND MOVED TO GLENCAIRN TO CREATE GLENCAIRN MUSEUM, WHICH OPENED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1982.
