World War heritage is well established, but what about the long conflict afterwards that in Europe never turned 'hot'?
With a major grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, National Museums Scotland is working with the University of Stirling and other museums in the UK and elsewhere in Europe to explore collections and displays, from military hardware to art and design, and to evaluate visitor responses.
The main project will commence in October 2021 for three years, during which we will host events, school programmes, and a major exhibition, as well as producing digital and print publications for a range of audiences. Whether nuclear bombers or peace badges, we ask, how does the Cold War feature in museums?
