This is a great museum. We very much enjoyed wandering around - as we have done many times in the past. There is always something new to find.

“Education”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

So very much to see here. They have quite a collection! Was easy to get around in. Never had any trouble getting close to the displays. Always had plenty of time to study them. Within walking distance of many other great sites in Edinburgh.
