The Museum of Scotland is housed in a modern building in Edinburgh's Old Town. The access to the building is very well thought out with easy ramps, stairs, and a roomy elevator which announces each floor and its theme in a charming Scottish female voice. Admission is free.The Museum chronicles all aspects of the history of Scotland. Displays are set out so that you walk around one floor, each dedicated to a different period of Scottish history. There are five floors in total. There are also special exhibits with a variety of topics related to the Scottish people and their history. It is very easy to explore the Museum and a visitor will learn a lot even during a short visit. Anyone interested in Scottish history could spend well over an hour on each floor.The Tower Restaurant is located on the top floor for some very good food when you need a break. There's a museum shop with interesting items and books related to Scotland in addition to the usual T-shirts.
