Trace what it means to be Celtic over 2,500 years, plus enjoy a whisky cocktail
Organised in partnership with National Museums Scotland, this is the first major exhibition to explore the full history of Celtic art and identity. It brings together extraordinary objects from across the UK as well as spectacular international loans such as the mysterious Gundestrup Cauldron. A 2,500-year-journey tracing what it means to be Celtic, from the first recorded mention of ‘Celts’ in ancient Greek sources to contemporary Celtic influences, the exhibition sees Iron Age treasures contrasted with modern relics. An exploration of how identity is revived and reinvented over the centuries, it's a fascinating insight into the cutting edge of anthropological thought. Tickets include a whiskey cocktail at the museum's Great court Restaurant. Cocktails will be served to over 18s only. Proof of ID may be required.
