The National Lottery has confirmed a grant of £1,071,900 towards the Heritage Lottery Funded Revealing Cultures capital project, the fourth and final stage of the 15 year Masterplan to transform the National Museum of Scotland. The grant supports a £3.3 million project which will see the creation two new galleries displaying National Museums Scotland’s internationally important collections of Ancient Egyptian and East Asian material, together with an extensive programme of activities across Scotland. 

Jura Consultants has worked closely with National Museums Scotland for a number of years, supporting the coordination and development of capital projects across its portfolio with particular involvement in the £80 million National Museum of Scotland Masterplan. We assisted the National Museum of Scotland in the preparation of the Round 1 HLF application for the Revealing Cultures project, providing ongoing advice as well as assistance with the preparation of the application form and supporting documents. Revealing Cultures will complete the Masterplan which has phase by phase restored one of the UK’s finest Victorian buildings, revealing remarkable treasures, creating inspiring learning experiences to engage yet more visitors and making the National Museum of Scotland one of the most visited attractions outside London.
