Created and coordinated by Museums Galleries Scotland, Festival of Museums encourages Scotland’s museums and galleries to provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy exciting, entertaining and surprising day or night events over one weekend.
The aims of the Festival of Museums are:
Festival of Museums encourages visitors to learn about and get involved with their local area’s museums and history. We encourage museums and galleries to be ambitious with your plans as exciting events will help you to attract visitors.
MGS is now accepting applications to our Festival of Museums fund. The deadline is 20 November 2015.
MGS also works with Voluntary Arts Scotland to tie in to Voluntary Arts Week and develop partnerships between museums and voluntary arts groups across the artforms. If you are interested in partnering with a voluntary arts group to help with your event this year, just get in touch with us.
