Learning at the Scottish Football Museum
With over 14 galleries and 2500 objects the Scottish Football Museum is an engaging and inspiring learning experience.
Football is an important part of Scotland’s heritage, our way of life and sense of identity. The Scottish Football Museum collects preserves and interprets this heritage. Our galleries use objects, film, sound and interactive activites to explain the history and impact of football in Scotland.
Working with education professionals the museum has developed a series of teachers’ notes and worksheets to aid teacher-led interaction with the museum’s collection. These can be made available for school visits.
