Running on selected dates from March to June, The Museum Collections Centre on Broughton Market is opening its doors to visitors, allowing them to see some of the incredible objects stored here.

Primarily a storage and research facility, it is here that Museums & Galleries Edinburgh store and maintain the many thousands of items in their care – items which when on display, can be seen in the city’s museums, including the Museum of Edinburgh and People's Story Museum.
