Who is this for? - All
Cost: Free

See some of the diverse collections of the City of Edinburgh Council Museums that are currently in storage. This is where we conserve the heritage of the city for the future. All objects have stories to tell us: who made them, who used them and what they were for. We can tell you some of these stories and help you see the past in the present.

This centre houses the reserve collections of the city museums and there are many interesting objects on open storage display, especially social history objects, decorative art and items from the archaeology collections.

Open for group and individual visits. Strictly for the curious.
