Flint Culture wins public relations brief for Paisley Museum in Scotland

Flint London appointed to deliver communications for a major cultural regeneration project in Paisley, Scotland.

Paisley Museum is being transformed into a world-class cultural destination, which when it reopens is expected to attract 125,000 visits each year from Scotland, the UK and overseas.

The £42m redevelopment of the museum is the signature project in Paisley’s radical regeneration which also includes refurbishments of the town’s A-listed town hall and a new learning and cultural hub housing library services on the town’s high street.

The redesign of the museum campus, being led by an international team including architects AL_A and exhibition designers Opera Amsterdam, will allow the number of objects on display to be increased by 100%.

Few places of Paisley’s size have had such a global impact, and this is reflected in the museum’s internationally-significant holdings, which include an unrivalled collection of 1,200 Paisley shawls and vast natural history collections. They are currently being held in Paisley: The Secret Collection, the only publicly-accessible museum store on a UK high street.

The Museum’s final phase of fundraising is now underway, with the recently-launched museum website reimagined.paisleymuseum.org showcasing the project’s ambitious vision.
