Special exhibition:

Highland Warriors
June 7, 2019 to January 12, 2020

Defender of clans, fearsome soldier and proud warrior — the Highland soldier is an iconic military figure whose role and reputation have evolved over the centuries, both within Scotland and beyond. More than 200 artifacts, from menacing broadswords to resplendent tartans, connect the fierce Gaelic warriors of the Middle Ages to Scottish Jacobites loyal to King James, and to the proud traditions of Highland regiments in Canada today. Discover the origins and history of a military culture known as much for its courage, toughness, discipline and skill as for its colourful kilts and the rallying call of bagpipes.

An exhibition developed by Nomad Exhibitions in collaboration with the Canadian War Museum and Glasgow Museums.
