Booking information

Timed entry has been introduced to ensure that we can manage numbers and maintain physical distancing. Please book a timed entry ticket online for every member of your group in advance of your visit. This includes National Museums Scotland Members. Once ticket booking is available, please book a timed entry ticket.

Please be mindful of the restrictions in place for your local area and adhere to Scottish Government guidelines. To comply with these guidelines and to help us with NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect, we are currently unable to accommodate groups that are from more than one household, so please book up to six tickets for yourself and other members of your household only. Please make sure you have booked a ticket for every member of your group, including children under five years of age.


All Members need to book a free timed entry ticket online in advance of their visit.

To book Member tickets:

  • Click on the ‘Book now’ link above
