The Regimental Museums

Edinburgh Castle is home to three different Regimental Museums.

The Museum of The Royal Regiment of Scotland

The museum was established in 2013 and is co-located with The Royal Scots Museum. Currently limited to a single gallery, you can find a selection of objects, photographs, text and audiovisual content displayed that highlight some of the activities and related stories of the Regiment since its formation in 2006.
