Nominated for the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year 2012, the 36 galleries contain items from all over Scotland and beyond, including the taxidermy remains of Dolly the Sheep, Viking brooches, ancient chessmen and Queen Mary's clarsach. In 2011 a £47m renovation saw 8,000 additional objects go on display – none of which had been exhibited before. There are plans to add 10 further galleries, which are scheduled to open in 2016.
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
