Find Your Thing: Sofia's story

We invited 8 young people to the National Museum of Scotland to explore our amazing spaces and find their thing. Sofia chose the enormous whale skull which takes pride of place in the heart of the museum. She loves Moby the whale as it made her think of home!

The Find Your Thing campaign was created by young people, National Museums Scotland and Bright Signals. It is part of a wider youth engagement project which has invited young people to get involved with National Museums Scotland to develop projects and give a voice to young people within the wider organisation.
