Our Socials create a friendly environment where everyone is welcome and all contributions are valued. They are suitable for first-time visitors and for those who might not regularly come to the museum, as well as people who have always loved visiting.
Our sessions are relaxed and informal, start with tea and cake, and feature a range of activities inspired by our collections. Each month has a different theme, so take a look at the dates and topics below.

Our Museum Socials programme has been short-listed, together with the National Galleries of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for Best Dementia Friendly Community Initiative.
We were nominated by Julie Baikie whose mum, Rae, has been coming to the Socials every week for over eight months.
“It’s the highlight of her week…. the variety of Friday activities are right up her street. It’s a fabulous program doing really important work and definitely contributing greatly to my Mum’s mental health and wellbeing.”
