How much



They chose objects from National Museum of Scotland and their local museums, for exhibitions in 2013. This final exhibition, the culmination of their project, showcases their choices and ideas, expressed through art, music, dance and films.

During 2013, volunteers at all five museums have worked alongside curators and other partners to create exhibitions and events that reflect their Sense of Place. The slideshow shows objects from the National Museums Scotland collection that featured in these exhibitions.

You can find out more about the Scotland Creates project here and keep up to date with activities at all the partner museums on Twitter, using the hashtag #ScotlandCreates, and on our blog.
