Edinburgh landmark museum to re-open after £46m refit

14/02/2011

You may have seen on the news lately that the newly-refurbished Victorian part of the National Museum of Scotland is to re-open in July after a £46.4m refit.

The three-year programme has seen the original interior restored and storage areas turned into public space, making it one of the UK’s largest museums.

With 20,000 objects across 36 galleries, museum bosses have said there will be something for everyone.  Exhibits range from a T. rex skeleton to specimens collected by Charles Darwin and 3,000-year-old mummies.

ClickNetherfield were honoured to be asked to supply around 170 showcases for the project.  The majority of the cases specified by the client were fairly large in size, and we prototyped the hinge-door Vista case especially for this project, supplying 70 of them to the museum in total.

ClickNetherfield Project Manager, Robert Swan, said “it’s very exciting to be a part of the National Museum of Scotland project.  The opening date being announced has brought home to me how vital it is that ClickNetherfield complete and hand over on schedule – and we are on track to do so.  It will be great to walk around the museum when it opens to the public, as I have many fond memories of the old building from my childhood.”

Our installation team are currently on site, due to complete in May.

The project has been jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Scottish government and private donations.
