Book your free tickets

We're looking forward to welcoming you back to the museum.

Book online in advance

We've introduced free timed entry for the National Museum of Scotland to ensure that we can manage numbers and maintain physical distancing. Please book a free timed entry ticket online for every member of your group in advance of your visit. This includes National Museums Scotland Members.

Please note that we are not able to accommodate groups that are from more than one household at the moment. To comply with Scottish Government guidelines and to help us with NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect, you can book up to six tickets for yourself and other members of your household only. Please also make sure you have booked a ticket for every member of your group, including children under five years of age.
