Storyplay is about being curious, exploring the world around you, and using your imagination to create your own games and stories.

Everyone can enjoy Storyplay, but it is a particularly great way for early years children to explore and investigate the world on their own terms. Everyone of any age can enjoy Storyplay, whether or not they speak English or are able to read it yet.

Storyplay opens doors to imaginary playworlds to unlock the limitless possibilities of children. It nurtures imagination, develops literacy, language and social skills, and improves confidence. Museums are great and fun places to Storyplay, as there is so much around to inspire you. The National Museum of Scotland is happy to invite you to Storyplay here to your heart’s content whenever you like.

Museums are wonderful places to visit, full of amazing objects and stories gathered from all over the world. Objects were collected for many different reasons. Some of the stories about how the objects were gathered are being explored here.
