“Great Free Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Cracking wee museum. Great if you live in Edinburgh. Bit dated but all the cooler for it. Housed in a building which is at least 200 years old.

“Surprised :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

The People's Story Museum doesn't look like a lot from the street. But in fact, it is bigger than it first appears, and I found it truly interesting! On top of that it is free and literally right across from The Museum of Edinburgh, so if for no other reason then it a free activity within walking distance from other Edinburgh attractions.
