At National Museums Scotland, we aim to share our collections and knowledge with as many people as possible. Through our blog and social media presence we hope to engage the interest and imagination of a wider audience than we can reach through our website.

We also want to make it easy for anyone interested in our work to keep up-to-date with all our activities, through the networks they’re already using.

If you’re on Facebook, Twitter or Flickr, why not join us?

Please note our social media channels are monitored Monday-Friday 9:00-17:00. The usual ways of contacting us with feedback or queries are detailed in the contact us section.


Want to find out more about our exhibitions and events, share our photos and videos and win exclusive museum goodies? Then Facebook is the place.


Interested in all we get up to at National Museums Scotland? Following us on Twitter is a quick and easy way to keep up to date – and to let us know what you think.


On the National Museums Scotland Flickr pages you’ll find photos taken at all our sites alongside pictures of objects from our collection and seasonal events. We also use Flickr to showcase footage from our Scottish Life Archive and share some of our more unusual artefacts.


Our blog takes readers behind the scenes at our four museums, and at the National Museums Collection Centre, where our treasures are stored, conserved and made ready for display.

Blog posts are written by staff from all over the organisation and readers are encouraged to comment and ask questions on the wide range of topics covered, from conservation to collections, exhibitions to events.


Our Pinterest boards showcase the detail and intricacy of objects in our museums, and make unusual connections across our collections.


We use photo-sharing platform Instagram to reveal the diversity and beauty of our collections.
