Third Friday of the month, 10:30–12:00
Our Museum Socials events are created for anyone affected by Dementia and their relatives, friends and supporters.
Museum Socials create a friendly environment where everyone is welcome and all contributions are valued. They are suitable for first-time visitors and for those who might not regularly come to the museum, as well as people who have always loved visiting.
Join our next one:

Back together again! The return of our in-person museum social for people living with dementia and their supporters. Our sessions are relaxed and informal, start with tea and cake, and feature a range of activities inspired by our collections.
Each month has a different theme. Take a look at what's coming up below.
Under The Sea
Curator Fiona Ware will be taking us under the sea to explore the extraordinary marine life we have in Scotland with her marine invertebrate collection.
Museum Socials are inspired by Meet Me at MoMA. We are programming these with the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Library of Scotland.
The event runs from 10:30 till 12:00 on Level 4 of our Education Space at the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street.
This space is accessible by lift and is well signposted. Our team will be on hand to show you the way on the day.
The event is free but please register now for your free space via Eventbrite. You will receive a confirmation email providing directions and further information from the Community Engagement team a few days before the event.
We want everyone who comes to our museums to enjoy their time with us and make the most of their visit.
