If I could give this Museum 6 stars then I would. The building was amazing, the layout was amazing, the food was excellent and the variety of exhibitions was outstanding. My daughter and I visited on our last day in Edinburgh. We had limited time unfortunately because we had to catch a flight. I fully intend to return to Edinburgh because I loved the city but even if I didn’t I would return for this Museum. I was enthralled. I was just so excited by so much and I am not someone who regularly haunts museums. I can’t praise this place enough whatever your age , interests there is something for everyone

Worth visiting. For those interested in history, heritage or culture, this is one not to miss. Usually museums not my scene but enjoyed this visit very much.

Four stories experience and time travel all around the world. Interactive games for all ages. All of this for free like any other museums. Simply cannot be missed.

This really is an incredible museum with so many beautifully displayed artefacts. It’s free and splendid. Do not miss it.
My favourite exhibits? So many! I did like the REAL planes flying above the gallery, the water fountain on the ground floor and the Charles Rennie McIntosh furniture. The building itself is phenomenal. I will bd back soon for a whole day.

First visit to Edinburgh so tried to do most of the tourist attractions. For a free attraction this was amazing. A lot of history and a lovely building inside to walk round.
