Our community engagement, schools and research programmes expand the reach and impact of the national collections far beyond the walls of our museums.

Our community engagement and outreach programmes ensure that our collections connect with as many people as possible, including those who would not otherwise engage with our objects and resources.

Our schools programme for nursery, primary and secondary schools reached over 53,000 participants in 2015-16, while our Museum2Go project takes the museum out to schools across the country.

Our research work and its public dissemination provides great opportunities to expand our relationships with museums and communities across the country.

Outreach and engagement

Our community outreach work is tailored to meet the needs and interests of specific target groups, to offer wider access to our objects and resources and through Schools Outreach.

Schools programme

Welcome to a world of learning with National Museums Scotland. Bring the Curriculum for Excellence to life with the help of our collections.

Our research

Research is core to our activities as a Museum, crucial to our stewardship of collections and to the intellectual development of subject knowledge.
