Went to look at the medieval Scotland side. The Museum is large and consists of a Scottish side and an International (including Scotland in part). I learnt plenty and saw much about medieval Scotland and in particular Norse Vikings. I also recommend the free guided tours which summarise the main things about what you could have seen. To see the whole musuem would take far too long and too much mental effort but three hours will enable you to see enough and enjoy it.
