The Museum of Scotland

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Kate06 on January 1, 2006

The Museum of Scotland is a must-see in Edinburgh if you are interested in the cultural history of Scotland. Each floor of the museum contains narratives and artifacts from a specific time period in Scottish history. The bottom floor begins with very early history, and the top floor contains modern history. I highly recommend taking the guided overview tour, which runs every half-hour or so. A staff member guides you around the museum and gives an overview of the exhibits. This makes it much easier to create your own plan of attack in the museum, as you'll have a better idea where to find the exhibits that interest you. Another must-do is a trip to the terrace level of the museum for the absolute best views of Edinburgh. I was lucky enough to be there at sunset and the views were amazing. My best photographs of Edinburgh were taken on the terrace of the Museum of Scotland.
