We're closing but we're not stopping!

MUSA is now temporarily closed as we prepare to redevelop and extend the museum, an opportunity to bring you fresh new displays and a wider range of temporary exhibitions.  

We might be closing, but we’re certainly not stopping. Over the coming year we’ll be bringing you a range of events and some temporary displays out and about as MUSA comes to you!

In this creative writing workshop led by Hannah Lavery, we will explore the theme of displacement by responding to material held by MUSA's archaeology and ethnography collection, by writing our way around and into objects people have taken with them when they have been forced, or have chosen, to leave the home they know.
Cost: £7.50
Booking required. Book via the Byre Box Office:
