Active learning

War dance routines are among the ways pupils can learn in new workshops at the revamped National Museum of Scotland.

Programmes for primary and secondary schools cover subjects from history and culture to science.

The museum is also showing an exhibition about Admiral Lord Cochrane, the inspiration behind the film Master and Commander.


Winning design

The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway received a gold award at the Roses Design Awards, held in Manchester this month. It has previously won several awards and was the only Scottish museum shortlisted for the Art Fund Prize earlier this year. www.burnsmuseum.org.uk.
