Our free guided themed tours at National Museum of Scotland explore everything from Scotland's history to the supernatural.
Themed tours take place every day at 3pm and have a different theme every day. Themed tours are subject to guide availability and some titles may change.
Our free public guided tours are for adult individuals and small groups (up to six people only). If you are visiting as part of a larger group please see our section on booked tours.
