The Scottish Tartans Museum needs you...

Dear Friends, Members, and Loyal Supporters,

Our country has been greatly influenced by Scottish heritage. The Scots were some of the first settlers. It seems natural that the only museum in the US dedicated to Scottish highland dress is located right here in Franklin, the heart of Scots-Irish settlement. We hope that you agree with us that the Scottish Tartans Museum is vital in telling the story of our heritage and keeping it alive.

Due to the pandemic, sales in our shop, which support the operation of the museum, have dropped dramatically. All of the southeast regional highland games, a critical source of income for the museum, have been canceled. As a result, we find ourselves in a difficult financial situation that could threaten the future of the museum.
