Scottish Museums Federation Events

 

We run a series of ‘pop-up’ events to encourage networking and information sharing between colleagues in the Scottish museums sector. These take a variety of formats such as exhibition openings, specialist subject talks, training and evening events.

 

If you’re interested in hosting a pop-up of your own, please get in touch with us by emailing us.
