The Museum of Scotland and conservation issues of commissioned art

Abstract

The Museum of Scotland is a new building in Edinburgh which opened in November 1998 to present the history of Scotland from its geological beginnings to the present day. This article considers conservation issues within three themes: the building itself as iconic modern architecture and its effect on the exhibition displays and their development; modern art commissioned to enhance the displays in specific ways; and the use of modern sculpture for the actual display of archaeological artifacts.
