About Us:

Our museum was founded by The Scottish Tartans Society (STS), which was established in Scotland in 1963 to maintain a worldwide membership and museums in Scotland and abroad, to create and maintain the Register of All Publicly Known Tartans, encourage research into Highland Dress, and to provide a design service for new tartans. Currently the STS no longer maintains an active membership or a tartan database, but the Scottish Tartans Museum continues in its work to promote Scottish Highland dress and educate the public about tartan.

Originally established in Highlands, NC, in 1988, the museum has been in Franklin since 1994 where we have both educated about tartan and Highland Dress as well as served as a general Scottish Heritage Center for the region.
