Meet The Piper
About Meet The Piper

As part of this year's Festival of Museums, come to The Museum of Piping at The National Piping Centre for a very special Scottish experience. Meet our Bagpiper who will take you on a journey through the rich history of Scotland’s national instrument, perform live for you, then let you try them for yourself in our one-hour experiential music tour! There will also be a museum quiz and colouring-in for our younger pipers. A quintessentially Scottish experience!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Meet The Piper are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
