The Museums Collections Centre is an amazing treasure trove of objects spanning a wide range of subjects.

Visitors taking one of our tours can view the reserve collections of the social history, Museum of Childhood and applied art collections. These items are not currently on display in the museum venues, and are held in store so that they can be accessed for research, lent to other museums for exhibitions, or used in our own temporary exhibition programme. Objects at the Collections Centre range from dolls' houses to wartime cooking, 18th century water pipes to teapots, and pantomime costumes to 2000 Queen Victoria clay pipes!

Tours of the Collections Centre will take you around the store where you will see some of the fascinating objects on open storage and find out about how the store and collections work. See the Opening Times for more information.

Open for group and individual visits on the first Tuesday of the month at 2pm. Booking is required via Eventbrite or by emailing museumcollectionscentre@edinburgh.gov.uk.
