Event description

Description

Do ghosts roam in the historical search room? Were cats once used as an early form of document preservation? Join National Records of Scotland for its first Unbelievable Tour, where we invite you to spot the lies among the truths.

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. New Register House was designed by Robert Matheson as the home of civil registration in Scotland and opened in 1861.

Hidden among the wealth of information provided on this tour, are five fibs waiting to be discovered. At the end of the tour we will ask if you were able to tell the fiction from the truth.

Tours will last approximately 40 minutes.

**Due to specialist survey work, the Adam Dome is currently closed and we will not be able to include this area on the tours.
