Find out more about the diversity of our science collections, our research and our commitment to science communication through formal and informal learning.
Our outreach and engagement projects expand the reach and impact of the national collections far beyond the walls of our museums.
Outreach and engagement
Our community outreach work is tailored to meet the needs and interests of specific target groups, to offer wider access to our objects and resources and through Schools Outreach.
Magic Carpet World
Our popular Magic Carpet storytelling sessions at the National Museum of Scotland provided inspiration for a pilot Community Engagement project encouraging bilingual families with preschool children to enjoy the Museum.
This vital support from funding and grants enables communities across Scotland to enjoy access to our collections, try fun activities and experience new learning opportunities.
Our international work
Our work has an impact across the world. Our international programme and partnerships aim to widen engagement and knowledge of the nation's collection for everyone.
We are always working with other Scottish museums on partnership projects that can raise the profile of long-term preservation and engagement with collections nationally.
