Meet the Piper
Join us in 2019 for a tour of our redisplayed Museum of Piping!
All our visitors can now have a truly authentic Scottish experience of playing the bagpipes. Visit the Museum of Piping to try the pipes as you take a tour around the museum, which charts the history of piping through the collection on display. Then with our bagpiper host, you can try the pipes yourself!
These tours are included with the cost of entrance to the museum. So come along and try your hand at piping!
Tours for groups are welcome, with a tour from a piper and opportunity to try to play and to hear the bagpipes available by arrangement. To organise an tour, please see our Try the Bagpipes page for full details.
