Bonnie Prince Charles and the Jacobites exhibition

A royal rebel is in the spotlight at the National Museum of Scotland, as an exhibition opening 23 June unravels the myths of Bonnie Prince Charlie and his fellow Jacobites aka the Stuarts who tried to wrestle the British throne from the Hanoverians. Paintings, weapons, Highland costumes and more track their story from Rome to Scotland to Paris including Bonnie Prince Charlie’s silver travelling canteen strewn on the Culloden battlefield where the Jacobites met their humiliating defeat in 1745.

Bonnie Prince Charles and the Jacobites, 23 June 2017 to 12 November 2017, National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1JF, 0300 123 6789
