This museum is a credit to Edinburgh. Recently re-furbished it is a delight to young and old alike.
There is something for everyone and plenty of interactivity for children. The museum has a number of cafe areas and a more expensive restaurant. The museum is free to visit and easy to get to from the centre of Edinburgh.

Marvellous regenerated museum---free entry. Can spend a whole day here and come back for more------ something for all ages---from all ages. Good eating places and shop--a must when you visit Auld Reekie.

The museum is free and laid out on several floors over several interconnected buildings. To see and appreciate everything there would take several days but we all look forward to going back next time we are in Scotland

The National Museum was just HUGE and giving you a good impression of Scotland. You could spend a full day in the museum if you would like to.

There's a lot to see here. Some of the displays are working models. We liked the easy to read descriptions. Be sure to visit the roof garden.
