Timed entry has been introduced to ensure that we can manage numbers and avoid overcrowding. All visitors, including our Members, can book a timed entry ticket online ahead of their visit to guarantee their entry date and time. Any unsold tickets will be made available to book in-person, on the day, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Families and small groups of up to six people can visit the museum together. All members of the party must arrive at the same time. Once in the Museum you are asked to stay with your party and, in line with Scottish Government (Covid-19) guidelines we would encourage you (including children aged 12 years and over) to wear a face covering throughout your visit.
