A place to explore your built heritage

Our built heritage tells countless stories: of the people who built them, lived in them and used them. We passionately believe our built heritage should be explored, understood and looked after to ensure they last for future generations. On our website and at our Stirling centre you will find everything from advice on how to look after traditional buildings to details of upcoming events being planned by the Engine Shed team.

What to expect

At the Engine Shed, you can explore the stories of the structures all around you from our free to visit centre in central Stirling. Our interactive exhibits, 3D theatre, augmented reality experiences and hands-on activities bring Scotland’s built heritage to life. Spend a day getting to grips with our interactive exhibits, enjoy activities for all ages, or sign up for a masterclass or workshop to help develop your skills.

Visitors can reach us easily by road or rail, and our imposing landmark of a building is clearly visible from both bus and train station. Edinburgh Airport is only 40 minutes away.
