We sometimes loan collections to other museums and galleries. This oil painting ‘Les Joueurs’ by Mary Cameron is one of three currently on loan from the City Art Centre to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art for their new exhibition ‘Modern Scottish Women: Painters and Sculptors 1885-1965’.
When not on display, many of our collections are stored at the Museums Collection Centre. This amazing treasure trove is open to the public by tour on first Tuesday of the month at 2pm. You can phone 0131 556 9536 to book.
This fantastic home-made dolls’ house from the Museum of Childhood is one of my favourite objects at the Museums Collections Centre.
