The National Museum of Scotland
Next door to the Royal Museum, the stunning new Museum of Scotland (opened 1998) details the history of the Scottish people. From the beginning of time through present day, the history of Scotland is explained through galleries and displays in a wonderful, informative exhibition. Wander through the halls and wonder at the fossils, the ancient jewelry and artifacts. Travel back in time to the industrial revolution and the Scottish position in the British Empire. Marvel at the technological advances that have taken Scotland to modernity.
Try to visit to this museum on your Edinburgh trip. If you can, join one of the guided tours. My guide was well informed and went out of her way to make this an enjoyable and interesting visit. There enough here to fill half a day or more.
