Event description

Description

The Museums Collection Centre stores a huge variety of objects from the City’s Social History, Applied Arts and Childhood collections. We also have a small conservation lab. The building is accessible but some objects are stored on an upper floor accessed by a wide metal staircase with open risers and a handrail. Accessible toilets are available.

Tours are approximately one hour; unfortunately it is not possible to provide seating during the tour in the store. Please email museumcollectionscentre@edinburgh.gov.uk or call 01315569536 if you have any access needs or special interest requests. We aim to make adjustments to the tour route where possible.

Find out more about the behind the scenes work going on at the Museum Collections Centre on our Reekie Untold blog.

Tours are led by Museum Collections Centre staff and volunteers. Because we all have our own interests and perspectives, each tour is different. Tours are free but donations are welcome.

May 6th - Reekie Untold: Stories from the Collections

Experience a tour of Museums Galleries Edinburgh's collection with our Collections Care Officer Gwen, as she explains aspects of the work we do to preserve our objects. She will highlight some of her favourite objects in store, including pigeons, panto costumes and a teapot with a dark past.
