National Museums Scotland
Our collections range from the eleventh to the twenty-first centuries. They are both national and international in scope, and are divided into the following four sections:
- Science collections include: scientific instruments, measurement and precision apparatus, Scottish lighthouse optics and apparatus associated with pure and applied research in modern science.
- Transport collections reflect the development of transport from the horse to jet aircraft, and from native boat to computer designed vehicles.
- Communications collections cover printing, telegraphy and telephony, sound and recording, radio, television and broadcasting. This section holds items from the BT Connected Earth collection.
- Technology collections include civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, mining and mineral processing and Scottish industry past and present.
