Museums Galleries Scotland is the National Development Body for the Scottish museums sector.
We’re here to support Scotland’s more than 400 museums and galleries, whether through strategic investment, advice, advocacy, skills development or other means. Discover our objectives, business plan and day-to-day goals
Museums Galleries Scotland developed the National Strategy, 'Going Further', in consultation with Scotland’s museums sector, and it was launched in March 2012. The compelling and inclusive shared vision has greater public value firmly at its heart.

Forum Connections is a 4-year, NLHF-funded project designed to build the capacity of Scotland’s museums for partnership working through investment in Scotland’s geographic forums.
‘Skills for Success’ helped Scotland's museum sector to address issues including a lack of diversity in the workforce; a lack of accessible entry and progression routes.
