Definitely worth a visit, especially if the weather is not so good! It is free entry too! It has a cafe and restaurant. Not far to walk from The Royal Mile.
Brilliant fun museum come rain or shine. Views from the upper outside garden. Includes a cafe and bistro.
Its free and its absolutely fabulous kids and adults all love this place. It's a favourite for families on rainy days in Edinburgh and only closes on Christmas day.
Great for kids and adults. Lots of stuffed animals and various other 'history bits'.
The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh Scotland, was formed in 2006 with the merger of the new Museum of Scotland, with collections relating to Scottish antiques, culture and history.
So many wonderful galleries and museums in Edinburgh and all free except the special exhibitions within them. But this is my favourite because you can usually find something fascinating to see and learn.
Dont miss the famous Sheep Dolly, the first successful cloning of a mammal from an adult cell!
“If you fancy stretching your legs then the walk up Arthurs seat is worth it, especially when the weather is nice. Views across the whole city and across the sea.”
Point of Interest
“Quite expensive at £19 per adult but if you're interested in History then may be worth a look. You can walk up to the castle for free!”
“Outstanding collection of scottish modern and contemporary art. Lovely gardens also free entry”
“Free gardens worth a visit, and the historic glasshouses are great. You can pay to enter all the glasshouses but the Victorian one is free. Lovely walks and nice views from the the lawn looking to Edinburgh Castle. ”
