Online Events National Museum of Scotland

Virtual tours from our curators

23 May 2020


Let our curators take you on a virtual tour of the museum collections, showing you their favourite objects.

While the National Museum of Scotland is closed we're keen to help our visitors enjoy our galleries virtually and what better way to do that than with a personal guided tour by one of expert curators.

So far you can enjoy two virtual tours: our Ancient Egypt Rediscovered gallery tour with Principal Curator of the Ancient Mediterranean; Margaret Maitland, and our renaissance Scotland galleries with Principal Curator of Renaissance and Early Modern Scotland; Anna Groundwater.
