The Royal Museum Project

This project helped revitalise the Royal Museum, transforming the public use of the building, while remaining sensitive to its original Victorian architecture.

Two new street-level entranceways were created, and a major circulation route was re-established through the Great Hall to the rear of the building, greatly improving movement around the museum. Sixteen of the 28 galleries were redeveloped, allowing the exhibition of 100% more artefacts than were previously displayed.

The project created 7000m2 of new display space, a 25% increase in special exhibition space, and a 20% increase in public space. The museum’s learning offer was significantly improved through the development of a dedicated education centre and informal learning spaces.

The revitalisation also created a more cohesive connection to the iconic, modern Museum of Scotland, to which it is physically linked.
