Festival of museums

Tayside’s museums and galleries are gearing up to celebrate the nationwide Festival of Museums with an eclectic mix of inspirational cultural events for all ages.

Staged from May 18-20, Festival of Museums will celebrate Scotland’s wealth of culture over a three day cultural extravaganza that promises exciting and innovative day and night events in museums and galleries throughout the country.

Many of the workshops, talks, concerts and exhibitions are free.

The Festival, organised by Museums Galleries Scotland, coincides with other Europe-wide celebrations of the many eclectic cultural experiences offered to visitors by museums and galleries, including Museums at Night.
