We're Good to Go
We have acquired VisitBritain’s Good to Go accreditation. This Industry Standard mark means that National Museums Scotland has followed government and industry Covid-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid physical distancing.
As a charity, we rely on your donations to care for our animals and our special landscape. Please donate today to support our work.
In the museum, learn about the land, people and ways of working that have shaped Scotland's rural history, and discover Scotland's largest collection of tractors, combine harvesters and other farming machinery.
After nearly five months of closure, we’re almost ready to welcome visitors back to our museums. We've made some changes to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit, including online booking and new safety measures.
