The museum

The National War Museum Scotland is part of National Museums Scotland, the country's national museum service. War and military service have touched the lives of countless Scots, leaving their mark on Scotland's history, image and reputation abroad. Here, in the magnificent setting of Edinburgh Castle, visitors can explore over 400 years of the Scottish military experience and uncover stories of courage and determination, victory and defeat, heroics and heartbreak.

Visit us

Want to visit our collections in person? Come and see us at Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh EH1 2NG. Entry to the museum is free, but there is an admission to get into the Castle. Please visit the Edinburgh Castle website to find out more about their ticket prices. Please check our website for up to date opening times. See you there!

Group Rules

All images must have been taken at the National War Museum Scotland, which includes the museum itself as well as the courtyard outside for events. Images of objects and displays, architecture, the courtyard, events and people enjoying their visit are all welcome.

For shots of events and people, preference is given to scenes in the context of the museum, i.e. with crowds, the building, the site in the background.

Photography is allowed throughout the museum unless otherwise indicated, so long as the images taken are for personal, non-commerical use. Please familiarise yourself with the museum’s full photography guidelines on the main group page before posting any images to the pool.

We would like our group pool to be as diverse as possible. You are kindly asked not to flood the pool with multiple similar or identical images. If you have several shots of the same view, please choose one or two of your favourite or best ones to share.

All posted images and discussions must be suitable for a family audience, please consider this before you post.

The admins reserve the right to remove any material they deem to be offensive or deemed to be in breach of the museum’s photography guidelines at any time without notice. Other material that is deemed not to meet the objects of the group may also be removed.

Repeat offenders will be blocked.
