I went to see the above exhibit, which was fabulous and then had a look around the rest of the museum. I liked it: it was a bit quirky and spacey, with lots of different exhibits. Would return. Lift to floor 7 takes you to...More
Great place and free entry.
There are many wonderful things to see but the layout leaves a bit to be desired, it is a bit like a maze and you can move from ethnographic items to airplanes to a church interior in a few steps,...More
Popped in here for a visit on a Thursday morning/afternoon. There are plenty of exhibits and plenty of things to look at. Many of the exhibits are also interactive which is a nice touch.
Now I'm into certain parts of history such as ancient Egypt...More

I wish I had set aside more time to go to this museum. There is so much to see here there’s no way you can cover it all in a few hours. Specialty shows were wonderful and I found dozens of interesting things on every...More
This museum is free of charge you just make a donation. The building is light and airy with a cafe on the gallery on the top floor. The exhibits are suitable for all ages from a t-Rex and other full size animals, to formula one...More
we did not explore this museum - it is simply too much for our time budget. we came for the Scottish history, and enjoyed as much of it as we were able to see - and there is much, much more. we highly recommend.
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
