About edinburghmuseumsoutreach

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools.

I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
