National connections Partnerships both home and abroad ensure our collections reach as many people as possible. Our current partnership activity is extensive. Through touring exhibitions, loans, support and dedicated activity programmes, we are able to introduce our collections to a much wider audience than can walk through the doors of our museums. Our partnerships also help boost skills, enabling us to share knowledge and experience across the museums community. Key partners National Museums Scotland has established formal partnerships with four Scottish organisations to boost skill-sharing opportunities and enhance access to the national collections. Find out more about these partnerships here. Projects As part of our service to museums across Scotland, National Museums Scotland can lend expertise, resources and knowledge to cross-museum projects. Here are some examples of recent collaborations.
