The National Gallery of Scotland is a highly recommended exhibition showing Scotland's journey from geological origin to the present. The specimens of the Dolly sheep, a mammal, produced by the first clone, are also a highlight.
Friends who like to visit museums must not miss a stop when visiting Edinburgh. The art gallery is located in the center of Edinburgh. It has a large collection of Scottish landscape paintings and masterpieces from the Renaissance to the Baroque period. These famous collections were transferred from the Royal Academy.
It started to rain again, and it was suitable to hide in the art gallery while receiving artistic influence. There are 18 exhibition halls in the museum, exhibiting paintings and sculptures since the Renaissance.
This is an excellent art museum, made all the better as it’s 100% free! The collection is large, including paintings from renown artists like Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet and Van Gough, as well as Scottish artists like Ramsay and Raeburn.

Excellent collection of art.
With so many galleries in Edinburgh this is probably the weakest in my mind. It’s not got the punch of the Portrait gallery or the variety of the Modern. It’s still fantastic though.
We spent an hour here, during a one day visit to Edinburgh, so we did not have time to view the entire collection. The museum has a substantial collection of European paintings, as well as a section devoted to Scottish artists, many of whom were new to me. The paintings are displayed beautifully. With free admission and an appealing collection, this is a perfect place to take a break on a rainy day.
