We’re reopening our museums
After nearly five months of closure, we have started to welcome visitors back to our museums with a phased reopening.
The Madonna and Child is a key exhibit in the Art of Living gallery, which opened in July 2016 as part of a major transformation of our Art and Design galleries. In April 2015, the Henry Moore Foundation awarded £8,000 to National Museums Scotland to enable a technical analysis of the Madonna and Child. Following the success of this initial project, further funding was secured to continue with this analysis and create a digital reconstruction of the original piece.
