About us

The countdown to Festival of Museums 2015 in May is on and we are working hard to make 2015 the most successful and engaging Festival yet!

Right now we’re working on giving the website a fresh new look, which will be launching very soon. We also have a new look for our social channels so if you follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook you’ll be the first too see our brand new look.

Museums across the country have been submitting their events and we are thrilled at all the spectacular things you are going to have a chance to experience. You can be among the first to view our full programme when it’s launched by signing up for our newsletter opposite or emailing us to ensure you keep up with all the latest news.

We’ll be back soon with something new and exciting for all of you…keep your eyes peeled!!


What's next?

It's not quite time for Festival of Museums 2015 but you’ll find a rewarding day out at museums and galleries across Scotland at any time of year. As well as a wealth of fascinating exhibitions showcasing art, ancient history, military artifacts, medical ephemera, fashion and culture, did you know you can also book a workshop in rag-rugging, ride in a bronze age dug-out canoe or pan for gold? A brilliant start is to search for a museum in your area through the Museums Galleries Scotland website (the wheels behind the Festival of Museums machine). Take a look now!
