Venue Description

Money and more! Located in the historic Bank of Scotland Head Office, this fascinating museum takes a fresh look at money.

Accessibility

Museum on the Mound is committed to providing a welcoming, engaging and accessible experience for all visitors. Our team will do all they can to ensure that your visit is comfortable and enjoyable. The museum is fully accessibly to wheelchair users. There is a slight lip at the external gate (approx 2cm) then a ramp down to the main door. This will be opened by a museum guard. The displays themselves are all on one level, and our cases have been designed to let an average wheelchair fit underneath so that the visitor can get as close to the objects as possible. The accessible toilet is through a two-way swing door, with the toilet door itself opening outward. We have induction loops in our reception and temporary exhibition space. Large print guides are available. We have a visual story and sensory map available on our website to help prepare you for a visit to the Museum. We also have ear defenders and sensory bags available, as well as a quiet space. Staff are always on hand to help.

COVID Precautions

Last updated:

You are not required to pre-book a visit to the Museum; however, we are currently limiting the number of visitors to a maximum of 30 in the museum at one time. If you arrive when the museum is at maximum capacity, you will be given the option to wait in our garden area until space is available. When entering the museum, you will be greeted from a safe distance by a member of staff who will direct you into the museum. Please note in line with Scottish Government guidelines, all adults and children over 12 visiting the museum should wear a mask/face covering where possible. Where possible, we are operating a one way system throughout the museum. All our galleries will be open. However, to reduce the number of touch points, foreign language guides and some of our displays are temporarily unavailable. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the museum and additional cleaning will be carried out during the day.
