You can enter the museum and explore certain exhibition spaces completely free of charge.

These spaces include the Scottish Design Galleries, an eclectic exhibit ranging from architecture to fashion pieces, to world-famous design collections curated in collaboration with V&A South Kensington.

The galleries are not the only free spaces for you to spend an afternoon at.

There are several free of charge commission spaces and smaller exhibitions at the museum too.

These change throughout the year so there’s always something fresh for guests to enjoy.

Paid exhibitions

Of course, certain specialist, changing exhibitions at the museum have an entrance cost.

For example, the current Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt exhibition costs £6-12 per adult.
