British Motor Museums

National Museum of Scotland, Science & Technology department

The National Museum of Scotland is one of the Top 10 UK visitor attractions, and in the Top 20 of the most visited museums and galleries in the world. National Museums Scotland has one of the most important collections of scientific and technological material in Britain. Transport collections reflect the development of transport from the horse to jet aircraft, and from native boats to computer designed vehicles. Highlight objects at the National Museum of Scotland include a working model of Stephenson’s ‘Rocket’, the mighty Newcomen engine and Jackie Stewart’s F1 car.
As part of the Museum’s ‘Masterplan’ programme of redevelopment, the Science & Technology galleries will be closed for refurbishment until 2016. However, many fascinating objects and working engines can still be viewed in the Window on the World and within the Scottish galleries.
