Join our exhibition curators for an exclusive early morning tour of our Cold War Scotland exhibition.  

The impact of the Cold War still lingers in Scottish politics, culture and memory. Join this tour of our current exhibition Cold War Scotland to better understand a time when the world stood on the brink of nuclear war.  

Dr Meredith Greiling, Principal Curator of Technology, and Cold War Research Fellow Dr Sarah Harper will delve deeper into stories explored within the exhibition, from the emergence of nuclear energy in Scotland to the vibrant anti-nuclear protests and political activism of the period.
