Established in 1980, the American Foundation has made a lasting contribution to Scotland’s culture and heritage. Over this time, our supporters have contributed to major renovations at the National Museum of Scotland and the National Museum of Flight, as well as the acquisition of important artefacts, revealing the stories that connect Scotland to the world and the world to Scotland.

We are proud of what our supporters have enabled National Museums Scotland to accomplish. The donations received continue to be vitally important to revealing Scotland’s national collections, for people around the world to enjoy.
