Come along to the Engine Shed this summer to explore your built heritage in a completely new way!

Investigate buildings across the country using our augmented reality app, find out how we're digitally documenting our heritage and use our interactive resources to investigate buildings and the materials that make them. 

Every week this summer, we'll have a different building-related theme for our drop in activity sessions, talks and demonstrations. Drop in sessions will take place 11am – 12pm and 2pm – 4pm every day. Talks will take place on Tuesdays 5pm – 6pm. Places at our talks should be booked in advance, using the contact information below.

Introducing the Engine Shed (3 – 8 July)

Transport yourself to another place with our VR headsets and create your own carved masterpiece from soap. Embrace your inner geek and join a tour of the Engine Shed, or sign up for a talk from our Director of Conservation to hear more about the bringing this building back to life.

We Love Metal (10 - 15 July)

Join in our moulding and casting workshop… with marzipan and chocolate! Hear our metal experts talk about decorative ironwork or take part in our photo competition on decorative ironwork in Stirling.
