Branch S231: National Museums Scotland

National Museums Scotland

The NMS mission is to preserve, interpret and make accessible for all, the past and present of Scotland, other nations and cultures, and the natural world.

The collection is displayed across five museum sites in Scotland: the National Museum of Scotland and National War Museum, in Edinburgh, the National Museum of Flight, in East Lothian, the National Museum of Costume in Dumfries and the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride.

As well as museums, the National Museums Collection Centre, based in Granton, Edinburgh, is home to millions of items not currently on display. It also houses state-of-the-art facilities for conservation, taxidermy and academic research.
