The current Museum is located across the balconies surrounding the Drill Hall and is home to a substantial and diverse collection dating back to 1859. Despite the awe-inspiring surroundings of the Museum, there is a significant threat to the collection posed by several factors, particularly from the light and heat emitted from the ceiling.
The museum project will ensure the future preservation of this unique collection by re-housing all artefacts in a modern, fit-for-purpose and fully accessible space which can be seen in the plans below. Additional exhibition space will be created not only on the museum floor but in the new memorial garden and across the renovated Drill Hall balconies.
Stories will be presented in new narrative recordings and visual displays to capture the visitors’ imagination and provide a deeper understanding about the life and times of the men and women, whose collective valour, loyalty and sacrifice played a part in, the London Scottish story.
