Thanks to the support of RBS and The List, the National Museum of Scotland is bringing you an exclusive chance to do all these things and explore the bigger, better National Museum at night with RBS Museum Lates.
You can say goodbye to the screaming kids for a start - this event is for over 18s only.

The first event of the series, First Look Live, takes place on Fri 11 Nov from 6:30pm‐10:30pm and will host some of the best in new Scottish music. Headliners FOUND — one of Scotland's top experimental pop bands will be supported by fine young producer S-Type alongside upbeat synth maestro Ben Butler & Mousepad.

As you soak up the entertainment, you can enjoy a drink with friends from the cash bars serving wine, beer, spirits, mini snacks and even some exclusive cocktails.
