Making the Museum
More than 10 million objects make their home at the National Museum of Scotland. Discover the secrets of our treasures with this unique five-part series.
Clothing and home dressmaking
The Turkey Red Collection of pattern books shows us the numerous printed designs that were produced, but the fabric samples do not always give a sense of what the end product was actually used for. Sources such as newspapers and surviving garments help us to see how Turkey red dyed and printed cotton was used in Britain.
School visits to the National War Museum
Step back in time with your pupils and discover the story of Scotland at war. Relive wartime experiences, from the front line to the Home Front, through personal mementoes and military equipment.
Meet the Buddhist guardian who's watched over the museum for almost 80 years.
