UMIS acts as the collective voice of university museums in Scotland.
Scotland’s university museums are open to everyone. Find out about the fascinating objects and collections they hold, how you can visit, and what events and exhibitions are coming up.
University museums have a huge range of collections and look after over 2 million objects. From the familiar and famous to the weird and wonderful, we have created some ‘mini collections’ of themed items from across the museums to give you a taste of the variety of things you can see if you visit.
University museums run a wide selection of exhibitions, events and other activities throughout the year – both online and in person. From exhibition openings to guided tours, special and themed events to involvement in local and national festivals, the museums offer something for everyone. Find out what’s coming up in the calendar.
