About this blog…

At National Museums Scotland, we care for over four million items. From prehistoric fossils to space age technology, our collections span millions of years and reach across the globe.

Previously called The Feastbowl, our blog takes you behind the scenes at our four museums: the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, National Museum of Flight in East Fortune, National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride and National War Museum at Edinburgh Castle.

Discover the diversity of our collections, from art and design treasures to groundbreaking scientific inventions, archaeological finds and iconic Scottish objects, wonders of the natural world and artefacts from around the world. Hear from staff across our organisation, from curators and conservators to volunteers and visitor services staff. Plus, discover the stories behind the scenes at our exhibitions, events and research projects.

We hope you’ll join us by sharing your thoughts and comments. We look forward to hearing from you.
