Event description

Description


National Records of Scotland provides its public services in two of Scotland’s most important public buildings. General Register House was designed by Robert Adam, and opened its doors in 1789, making it one of the oldest purpose-built archive buildings still in its original use. Access to Adam’s magnificent rotunda, a unique statue of George III and Robert Matheson’s Victorian rotunda. New Register House was also designed by Robert Matheson as the home of civil registration in Scotland and opened in 1861.

There will be a special display of historical records, expert tours, and a fly-through video of Register House in 1796 and in the present.
