Visiting Our Museums

Find out how to book a visit and access our self-guided resources

Plan Your Visit

Our museums are located within Edinburgh Castle, so there is lots to see and do! Entry to our museums is free with your Castle admission ticket. For the latest guidance on entry to Edinburgh Castle, including ticket prices, please see the Edinburgh Castle website.

If you are planning a self-guided visit with a school or group please have a look at our teacher’s information, or contact us using the form below to find out more about access for schools and optional learning resources.

Opening Times:

1 April – 30 September: 09:30 – 16:45

1 October – 31 March: 09:30 – 15:45

Last entry is 15 minutes before closing.

Please note that our galleries are not spacious enough for a large group, so we would recommend breaking into smaller groups of up to six people in order to explore more comfortably.

If you decide to have a self-guided visit, then follow our handy checklist!

  • Let us know you are coming and the size of group so we can help accommodate your visit to the Museums and offer resources.
  • Book your admission tickets in advance with Edinburgh Castle.
  • Check out the additional resources for self-guided visits on the Historic Environment Scotland and National War Museum websites.
