National Museum of Scotland

Metaphor led the exhibition design for the second phase of the refurbishment and redisplay of the National Museum of Scotland’s science and technology galleries.


These galleries are now the UK’s most comprehensive outside London and establish the National Museum of Scotland as a key centre for science engagement to all audience cohorts. Testimony to their success, these galleries were awarded the 2017 International Dibner Award for Best Scientific Exhibits.
