National Museums Collection Centre
indicates offers with National Art Pass
Home to many of the objects and specimens that are not currently on display in National Museums Scotland's museums.
Two new buildings provide state-of-the-art conservation laboratories and enhanced storage for the national collections. Visits are by appointment only. Alternative arrangements may be made to view objects at one of National Museums Scotland's sites subject to the availability of staff to assist.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
Visiting with children?
Use our audio introduction to inspire a visit to any museum, gallery or historic house local to you. Then, just send us your child’s animal artwork when it's finished and we'll add it to the epic collective artwork that launches on Earth Day 2023.
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.
