Refund Policy

National Museums Scotland have a non-refundable and non-transferable ticketing policy.

Customers will only be provided with a refund if the event, activity has been cancelled by the Museum or Museum closure has taken place due to circumstances out with our control.

If an event is cancelled, the Museum will sometimes reschedule to a new date, if this occurs we would aim to transfer as many ticket holders as possible to attend on the revised date.

If you have a question about our refund policy please email
