The National Museum of Scotland brings together our rich Scottish heritage with exciting international collections. Your journey of discovery starts here.
Scotland’s premier museum of natural and anthropological history is an eye-catching mix of old and new: the main hall, a grand, airy space ringed by balconies across three storeys, dates from 1866, while the more modern sandstone section was opened in 1998. Its contents, too, are wide-ranging: from…

Point of Interest
““At the center of Scottish life for more than nine hundred years,Edinburgh Castle was one of the strongest fortresses in the kingdom.It has served as a royal palace arsenal ,gun foundry,state prison,a place of safe-keeping ”
“My favourite of all the Scottish Galleries. But then I am a modern art fan. There are two galleries here No 1 and No 2 literally opposite each other across a road you could easily spend a full day in each of them. Located in Edinburgh’s West End there is a gallery link bus from the national gallery on Princes Street( £1 charge each way). From the Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore sculpture in the garden setting to the Lichtenstein in the gallery this setting keeps on giving. Inspired curation provides a host of specialist exhibitions throughout the year. Currently a Paula Rego exhibition (spring 2020). You cant see everything on a short trip to Edinburgh but if you love art this is a must. Great cafe which is just as well as a bit of a walk to alternatives. ”
