Scottish Museums CouncilThe Scottish Museums Council (SMC) is the membership organisation for local museums and galleries in Scotland. iAn Advisory Non Departmental Public Body (NDPB), its aim is to improve museum and gallery provision in Scotland for both local people and visitors. It has over 200 members who in turn manage over 320 museums. They include all 32 local authorities, universities, regimental and independent museums, ranging in size from small voluntary trusts to large metropolitan services, attracting in excess of 1 million visitors a year.
SMC combines strategic leadership for the sector with provision of professional information, advisory and support services to members. Its information service is a convenient route into information on a wide range of museums issues, as well as useful facts and figures on museums in Scotland. It hosts details of its members' museums on its website which can be searched for by local authority area or by name.
