Show Scotland logoShow Scotland 2009 has launched and its website goes live with information on events taking place at museums and galleries across Scotland over the May bank holiday (1-4 May).

museums galleries scotland logoShow Scotland, a Museums Galleries Scotland initiative, welcomes back old and introduces new visitors to the nations museums and galleries with a dazzling diversity of original interactive and energising events.

Show Scotland provides museums and galleries with an opportunity to be creative and daring with their collections and venue space. These innovative and original events are specially designed for Show Scotland.

Joanne Orr, CEO of Museums Galleries Scotland said:

“Show Scotland is a chance to celebrate and have some fun with our extraordinary heritage through creative and exciting events. The sheer exuberance of the programme infects everyone working in the sector and every year we see the energy grow stronger and stronger in anticipation of the big May weekend.”

Although most Show Scotland events are free, some have limited places and can get booked up quickly so visitors are encouraged to reserve tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

See www.showscotland.com for details of all events.

This year Show Scotland is also on Facebook and Twitter , keeping visitors and members up to date with developments as preparations get underway.
