From 3-9 December 2018, we are opening our doors for free to National Lottery players.

The Scottish Maritime Museum will be throwing open its doors for free to National Lottery players during the week of 3-9 December 2018  They are one of hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard from 3rd to 9th December 2018 gets Free admission in return. 

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7.8bn National Lottery funding since 1994.  This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”
