Culture and Heritage

Ongoing multi-year key programmes are:

  • the V&A Museum of Design Dundee;
  • estates and storage maintenance; and
  • repair and improvements at the National Collections.

Phase 1 of the refurbishment of the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow was completed in 2016. This is a partnership with Glasgow University and Glasgow City Council which included the creation of a new centre for the Moving Image Archive, relocating the National Library of Scotland's Scottish Screen Archive previously housed at Hillington Industrial Estate.

Undertaking repairs, maintenance and improving storage in the cultural estate is ongoing. The most significant ongoing project is external refurbishment of the National Library's Causewayside building, of which Phase 1 is complete with Phase 2 ongoing at present.

The V&A Museum of Design Dundee project is under construction and will open to the public in 2018.
