Huntly House comprises three tenements that were amalgamated in 1570. It was dubbed "The Speaking House" by a Victorian antiquarian, in reference to the Latin inscriptions on its facade. Informative displays inside tell the history of Edinburgh, from prehistoric times through to the nineteenth century. Visitors are able to see collections of colorful shop signs, pottery and Edinburgh silver and glass. The tenements themselves are the real attractions here. They are laid out as they were before the Scotland-England Union, the cramped living spaces are startling. Check for details of temporary exhibitions of art and artifacts. Admission is free.
