FULLY BOOKED - Members Private Viewing of the New Galleries

Date: Wed 20 February 2019
Time: 17:45 - 20:00 
Where: Auditorium, Level 1, entry via Lothian Street entrance

This event is now fully booked.

Members of National Museums Scotland are invited to celebrate the completion of the final phase of the National Museum of Scotland’s amazing 15-year transformation at an exclusive after-hours event.

Thanks to the support of many Members, three fantastic new galleries are opening in early February 2019: Ancient Egypt Rediscovered, Exploring East Asia and Art of Ceramics.

Come and enjoy a glass of wine after hours, tour the galleries, see the magnificent objects on display and speak to the experts who have enabled these exciting new spaces to come to life.
