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. Parking is available at Forthside car park. There are two accessible parking bays for blue badge holders located at the front of the building by the road running parallel to the train station.
We are open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
Please note the Engine Shed will be closed all day to the public on Thursday 19 September, Friday 20 September and Saturday 21 September.

The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
