National Museum of Scotland

Location: Chambers Street, Edinburgh

Daily (except 25-26 Dec, 1 Jan): 10am - 5pm


Scotland's National Museum is made up of two neighbouring buildings completed 130 years apart that tell many fascinating stories about our planet. The Museum of Scotland building, the newer of the two, holds collections from pre-history right up until the present day, while the adjacent former Royal Museum is dedicated to art, design, technology and geology, together giving visitors a wealth of information and interactive displays to experience. One special section explores the country's national history through its best-known innovators and creators, following the story of Scotland and its place within the world as we once knew it.
