Transport and Industrial Collections

Transport and industry collections provide a vital insight into Scotland’s social and economic history.

This tangible heritage links us to the millions whose lives have been shaped by technological improvement over the past three centuries. Mining, fishing, engineering, transport, printing and manufacture have left an incredible legacy for the nation in the movement of its peoples, the shape of the landscape and Scotland’s reputation worldwide. These collections still represent the success of Scottish innovation in the field.

The Scottish Transport and Industry Collections and Knowledge network aims to promote care and enjoyment of these collections. Through research, stewardship and advocacy, STICK encourages wider engagement with technological and industrial history collections across Scotland.
