Explore the diversity of the natural world, world cultures, science and technology, art, design and fashion, and Scottish history, all under one roof. A range of new safety measures have been put in place along with timed entry to ensure that we can manage numbers and maintain physical distancing. Please book a timed entry ticket online at www.nms.ac.uk/scotland in advance of your visit. This includes National Museums Scotland members.
As we begin to welcome visitors back to the museum, the reopening of galleries will be phased, with the Entrance Hall and Grand Gallery levels, and Level 3, opening first. You will be able to catch up with old favorites from the Lewis chess pieces to Dolly the Sheep and the spectacular Millennium Clock will be in full working order. You will also find new displays including Scotland’s Precious Seas and a special display of objects from our Scottish collections.
The Balcony Café (Level 3) and a pop-up café in Hawthornden Court (Level 1) are open, accepting card payments only.
