Join our tour guide, Babs Brown, for a Deaf-led BSL tour of the museum’s Scottish Galleries.

Find out more about the museum’s fantastic Scottish History and Archaeology collections with this free, Deaf-led tour in British Sign Language. The tour will last around one hour and will be followed by refreshments and a chance to relax, socialise and get hands-on with some of the museum’s handling objects.

This event is Deaf-led and particularly aimed at adult BSL users.

A woman stands in front of a printed timeline on a wall signing in BSL. In the foreground, out of focus, 3 visitors face her, two with hands raised.
