Our suggestion is to support the National Museum of Scotland (NMS) by gifting a membership to NMS to your friends or family. You are doing some good while giving a great gift at the same time!
The memberships start from £39 but entitle the holder to free entry on exhibitions and days out across four museums. The benefits go on as the membership also entitles you to a 10% discount in shops and 20% in the cafés! You also get the Explorer magazine delivered three times a year.
The exhibitions coming up in 2017 include Monkey Business and the much anticipated Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites.
You can buy online, by phone on 0131 247 4294 or in person at the Museum in Chambers Street or the National Museum of Rural Life, the National Museum of Flight or the National War Museum and the gift pack will be sent direct to the recipient.
