HES Travel Subsidy Scheme

We are a location supported by the Historic Environment Scotland Travel Subsidy Scheme!

That means Scottish schools can apply for help towards the travel costs of visiting our museum.

The Scottish Government Heritage Travel Subsidy for Schools can cover up to 75% of transport costs (up to £250) to visit us.

To learn more: Free Learning Visits (Historic Environment Scotland).


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.

Note: Please note that David Livingstone Birthplace (and the David Livingstone Trust) is no longer part of National Trust Scotland (NTS). NTS members will therefore no longer receive discounted/free entry to the Birthplace Museum.

Support Us

As a registered charity we rely on your donations to help us maintain the museum, its unique collections and educational programmes. Your generosity will make a difference, thank you.
